Great webinar organized by Telecom Review Group and moderated by Ismail TBER about “The Connectivity Revolution in Rural Africa”.

Here are 5 key insights from this discussion with John Omo, Omar Moya, Maria Gabriela Macra, Dayn Amade and Iris De Brito:

             1. We are on the right path to see profitable and sustainable connectivity solutions in rural Africa

             2. It’s essential to think connectivity in a cross-sectorial way within an integrated development strategy including telecommunications, energy, and transportation infrastructure.

             3. Strengthening partnerships is crucial—between governments, civil society, the private sector, and communities.

             4. Governments and private institutions should focus on realistic, locally-adapted solutions that resonate with local needs

             5. E-government Services and Education emerge as foundational for driving positive Social and Economic changes, highlighting the transformative power of connectivity.

Let’s continue to collaborate and turn these insights into concrete actions for a connected and empowered Africa!

Many thanks to all the panelists for this enriching discussion and to Telecom Review for organizing this important panel.
