The rapid advance of Information and Communication Technology (ICT) makes young people the most qualified to propagate it. ICT is also known as telematics (or info-communications). Telematics is a specialized field of engineering that has developed in part from computer science and in part from electronics, particularly telecommunications. ICT has been growing in importance around the world thanks to the explosive growth of the Internet and its many applications in education, science, services and leisure activities. Developing countries are "creating" qualified professionals whose skills can make these countries good challengers in the ICTs-related products or services, like Internet-based business or services (e-business, e-learning, etc.) Those services/products can be offered to the country itself or to other countries since only ICT-related professionals and the infrastructure are required to develop them.
