TDS LIVE|Digital Economy Delivers for Africa

Session objectives 

As countries across the continent face continued rapid growth across many sectors of the economy, what role will digital technologies, services and digitally enabled goods play in Africa’s development? This session will explore the perspectives of digitally enabled businesses operating in Africa to present the opportunities and challenges to effective cross border development across Africa. Can these technologies be helpful in growing robust domestic and regional industries and how can they help in connecting to international value chains? What does business need for policymakers and what outcomes from regional and continental integration processes do businesses need to thrive?
