The institute of international education at Stockholm University accepted a commission to study the development of ICT education in Sweden with the aim to create a model for development in Sida (Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency) partners countries. the link between Sweden and ICT is a logical one given the country's strong and dynamic information and communication technology sector.  Training institution in most countries have failed to produce the number of ICT technicians and professionals needed to fill the labour market demand of the ICT sector. This skills bottleneck will hamper ICT development in many developing countries. And the solutions is an increase in the quantity and quality of ICT training in countries such as Sri Lanka and Tanzania.
