With the world’s youngest population, demand for digitalisation across Africa has grown at its fastest pace through rapid urbanization and a huge increase in the consumption of online services. And at a time when technological innovation and economic growth go together, technologies such as Generative AI represent a major opportunity to transform telecom businesses and services. Intelligent connectivity is opening opportunities for new partnerships and innovation but only if high-quality access to communication networks and services are made available to all, and at affordable prices. Join us as we hear from the leaders across the region on their role in creating our digitally connected future.
