Luanda — The coordinator of Electronic Governance Project of the Ministry of Telecommunications and Information Technology, Augusto
Mota de Carvalho, said Friday that the public/private partnerships are means for development of information technologies in the country .
Speaking to Angop, the official stressed that the prices of Internet services in the country are expensive and this can be solved through partnerships.
The internet as a means of information and communication should be considered a tool of progress in a society.
According to him, the internet brings services closer to the population in many areas.
Carvalho said the internet service providers should not be concerned only about the prices but also about the issues related to the access, ease and large adherence of citizens.
"The more people have access to the service the more providers generate income, he said, adding that it makes no sense to charge high prices.
