Abstract: Facing a collection of challenges, how can the Shanghai cooperation organisation (SCO) use technology to help improve cohesion, cope with enlargement, manage relations better with external parties, develop resources, advance economic cooperation between members, improve their speed of decision making and upgrade their quality of decision implementation. This review suggests potential solutions to resolve difficulties and consolidate the SCO's status through the use of improved communication mechanisms, surveillance devices and computer software, inter alia, to assist in the enhancement of communications, improve the security of stakeholders, develop a legally binding framework, promote economic confidence, increase financial inputs, encourage stronger joint-leadership from its two largest partners and manage enlargement.

Keywords: SCO; Shanghai Cooperation Organisation; technology usage; development prospects; surveillance devices; computer software; communications improvement; stakeholder security; legally binding framework; economic confidence; financial inputs; joint leadership.
