United Nations calls for countries in the Asia-Pacific region to embrace the OpenDocument format

SINGAPORE, ZDNet Asia

Sunil Abraham, manager of the International Open Source Network (IOSN) at the U.N., told ZDNet Asia that most governments in the region have already stated their support for open standards, through their respective government interoperability frameworks.

He hopes that governments in the region will now extend that support and "seriously consider" the OpenDocument Format (ODF).
