The Minister of Communications, Knowledge, and Technology of Botswana, Thulagano Segokgo has conveyed his intentions for the country to become a regional digital skills hub.
It is imperative that Botswana, through these future-oriented, skilled digital human capital, establish herself as a regional talent hub and thus create opportunities not only in our economy, but in the region..
This means expanding market penetration into the region, positioning Botswana as a regional ICT hub; the country becoming a regional and continental player beyond improving the financial performance of the communications sector nationally.
It therefore requires us to renew and upgrade our national infrastructure.
These being key challenges, that, if not addressed, will lead to a loss of trust and confidence, essential for diffusion of digital services. Therefore, we need to reflect on our efforts in this area and develop appropriate resolutions to catapult us as a trusted destination.Thulagano Segokgo, Minister of Communications, Knowledge and Technology, Botswana
