A challenge for ICT’s and their penetration in Sub-Saharan Africa

The NGO Benin-Emergence, the World Summit Association WSA, and the government of the Republic of Benin are organizing an exclusive meeting of African leaders to discuss how the e-Contents (contents of Internet) can help promote development in Western Africa.

The summit begins under honorary sponsorship from the president of the Republic of Benin, Dr. Thomas Boni Yayi of H.E., that will welcome personally all the participants of the conference, which will be held from July 12-14, 2007, and hopes to gather representatives of high standards of industry of ICT’s (sponsors of Internet Services (ISP) and mobile operators), of governments, of civil society, of the academy, private sector, and international organizations of 42 countries. 

The topic of the Summit is “Improve the forms of Digital Life in Sub-Saharan Africa” and its goal is to examine the specific needs of the people in the developing countries of Sub-Saharan Africa and the digital industry in the African market. 

The debates will explore the forms of life now in Africa and how ICT’s could adapt to them more efficiently. They will attempt to prepare, as better as possible, the inhabitants of Western Africa, including the creators of content and educators to promote cultural diversity, cultural identity and multilingual content, that way they can share these practices with the e-Government, e-Business, e-Learning, e-Health, e-Culture, e-Science, e-Inclusion, and e-Hospitality for the future development of the ICT’s in this continent.
