Overseen by the CST since its inception in 1998, the SHARE project is a project that the TTC has actively partaken in as part of an effort to extract essential standardization and/ or documentation factors for bringing better lives in rural areas with ICT.

The TTC has been in close collaboration with APT members with regards to the various APT SHARE projects that include sectors of e-agriculture, e- education, e- health and e-environment, using models of latest technologies and standards which are cost effective. These models are built based on knowledge sharing among APT members and can be applied widely in developing countries as “standard” models.

Contributions from Indonesia, Japan, Malaysia, Philippines, Thailand and Vietnam as well as collaborative initiatives with Asia Pacific Telecommunity projects have resulted in several projects being carried out in different countries, each addressing four applications over ICT/ NGN to be developed as the solutions against social issues in rural areas, namely:

    • e- agriculture
    • e- education
    • e- environment
    • e- healthcare
