The areas of the strategic framework complement one another and would be most effective when launched simultaneously, in order to achieve optimal coordination.  Changes in emphasis could be introduced that would take into account specific conditions and priorities.  During implementation, the centre of gravity could shift from one area to another as dictated by progress and specific regional priorities.

The framework around which the RPoA has been built is flexible and capable of accommodating future lines of action.  In this regard, the following non-exhaustive list of actions could be launched in parallel, amended to fit regional, sub-regional or national priority areas, extended to include innovations in the field of ICT and implemented at different times according to changes in expected accomplishments and indicators of achievement.  The entities responsible for carrying out these action lines would be governments, through their Ministries of Telecommunications and Information Technology, national ICT councils or other entities, depending on the preference of each country.  Collaboration with international and regional organizations with a thorough knowledge of the region, such as ESCWA, the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) or United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) is highly recommended in building the information society.  It is also envisaged that each country would, eventually, select the action lines most suitable for its needs, set priorities, adjust the time frame and assign an entity responsible for implementation of each action.
