Event Description

Overview: As we transit into the post COVID era, it behooves us to discuss the different ways to deal with the aftermath of the pandemic. "According to a report provided by the African Development Bank in a comprehensive socio-economic assessment of the pandemic’s impact, the Bank said growth was now projected to rebound to 3% in 2021 from -3.4% in the worst-case scenario for 2020. The growth outlook for 2021 and beyond would depend largely on African governments’ effectiveness in flattening the curve of the outbreak and policies to reopen economies". The COVID-19 pandemic not only highlighted the holes in the digital infrastructures in Africa, it also drastically affected businesses in the African ICT economy. In order to properly address these issues that plague the economy, we would have to look at the most prominent flaws such as the digital divide amongst the masses in Africa due to accessibility and affordability, the dip in connectivity due to workload on poor infrastructures, the spike in cyberthreats across the globe and many others. These challenges in the digital infrastructure of the economy needs to be properly managed. Africa ICT Alliance - AfICTA has organized its 8th Annual Summit to precisely to discuss some of these issues as well as profer solutions which would be provided by the diverse speakers and professionals from different stakeholder groups in the ICT field. Themes discussed would range from Access to Infrastructure Improvement Funding, DNS Abuse, Cybersecurity, Capacity Development.
