Abstract

Issues relating to knowledge economy, the significance of developing human resources and importance of developing and establishing a policy framework for ICT growth in LDCs are discussed, along with IT/IS education and the need for IT/IS curriculum relevant to country requirements. A set of underlying principles for an IT/IS education model suitable for LDCs is postulated, in particular for PNG.
