Our mission is to transform how government learns, builds, delivers, and measures digital services in the 21st century. To do this, we provide people in the government with the tools, methods, practices, and policy guidance they need to deliver effective and accessible digital services. Moreover, to ensure the use of appropriate and affordable digital technologies through a transformative and inclusive approach across sectors of the economy for benefits of all.

The purpose of this policy is to outline the objectives and strategies for the use of media as a tool for development, such as the promotion of democracy, good governance, human rights, and social and economic development.
It includes provisions for the regulation of media, ensuring press freedom and the protection of journalists, and promoting media literacy among the population.
The Government recognizes the role of media for a democratic society and as such, this policy is designed to conform to international norms and standards on freedom of expression, press
