  • 5. Exacerbating the problem is a lack of capital to fund deployment of new solutions Just over $6 is spent on operations for every $1 on new investment New ICT investment has dropped this year by 4% from 18% in 2008 Private sector clients are reporting difficulty accessing capital 5 Commercial-in-confidence
