Digitalisation: What are the Future Challenges for the Next Generation?

Digitalisation: What are the Future Challenges for the Next Generation?

No other continent is embracing the fourth industrial revolution as fast as Africa. Young African entrepreneurs have grasped the continent’s fast-spreading digitalization to develop services tailored to the local demand. Digitalization also provides innovative solutions for sustainable and inclusive development in areas such as facilitating access to knowledge and services, and reducing corruption and improving traceability. Governments will also have an essential role in enabling their countries’ digital transformation by investing in network infrastructure and adopting a comprehensive legal framework. To this end, all stakeholders, private and public, must work together in order to harness the fourth industrial revolution and to develop digital solutions for Africa’s socio-economic challenges.

During this session you can hear Tesi Rusagara, Head of Kigali Innovation City; Lorena Boix Alonso, Acting Director, Policy strategy and outreach at DG CNECT in the European Commission; Dounia Taarji, President of the Hassan II Fund for Economic and Social Development; and Gero Peters, Managing Director of Siemens Healthineers who will share their views.
