Designed to further raise awareness on Africa’s capacity for shared digital prosperity in a technology-driven economy, the June edition of its monthly “ADEF series” is drawing notable stakeholders from South Africa, Nigeria, Tanzania, Ghana, Sierra Leone, Kenya and Rwanda amongst others.

The theme for June is: “Investing in Africa Digital Economy, building the future today.” The event will explore and advocate for the right policies and opportunities to ensure the realization of full pace African digital economy.

In the last two decades, the continent has witnessed a rash of investments, policies and regulations targeting to improve the Information and Communication Technology (ICT) infrastructure environment. The results have been a mix of blessings and disappointments. But Africa marches on.
There is a conscious drive-in government to lay the foundations for a vibrant digital economy driven by millions of the continent’s young innovative youths.

The increasing digitalization of the economy is creating expansive opportunities across sectors with greater potential for more inclusive growth development.
