  6. connect all local and central government departments and establish websites and email addresses
  7. adapt all primary and secondary school curricula to meet the challenges of the Information Society, taking into account national circumstances
  8. ensure that all of the world's population have access to television and radio services
  9. encourage the development of content and to put in place technical conditions in order to facilitate the presence and use of all world languages on the Internet
