“Africa is facing a deep digital transformation. Unfortunately, infrastructures and connectivity still remain a challenge to overcome for the continent to truly achieve a sustainable digital transformation. In order to foster a solid transition, governments, regulators and businesses’ cooperation and coordination become essential. Africa requires trusted partners to implement necessary solutions to promote an effective digital transformation, protect existing revenues and generate new ones”, explains James Claude.
The Transform Africa Summit is the flagship event for Africa’s digital transformation, gathering 4500 delegates–Heads of State, ministers and opinion leaders, among others–from over 90 countries. It is organised by Smart Africa, an Alliance of Heads of State and Government and representatives of the private sector aiming to accelerate the socio-economic development of the continent through the lever of ICT.
The 5th edition of the Summit will be held under the overall theme “Boosting Africa’s digital economy”, inviting the participants to discuss practical ways to advance the commitments related to achieving Africa’s transformation into a fully digitized economy where technology is harnessed to fully reap the benefits of pan-African integration efforts.
