TFi4SD Africa Summit 2017

From November 1-2, GEIA’s 2017 Annual Summit was held at the Oriental Hotel, Lagos, Nigeria. Titled “Intra-African Trade, ICT and Development,” the fi­rst plenary examined Africa’s unmet ICT needs for education, energy, ­finance, health, industry, transportation, and other domains; and the requirements for developing and implementing an ICT strategy to serve these needs. The implications of technological innovations, payment systems, technology infrastructure, rural communities, access to new technologies and trade policies for intra-African trade were discussed during the second session. The third plenary focused on new growth channels, start-up ecosystem models, and strategies communities use to create differentiation and bolster support for industry expansion. Some interesting marginal perspectives also emerged, based on questions and comments from participants at the event. Link:
