Inclusion, Progress and Development through Mobile

This is the digital age for Africa. Once again the continent is about to show the world the true potential of mobile.

Mobile connectivity in Africa is going beyond merely connecting people to basic communications, but providing a platform for creating, distributing and consuming innovative digital solutions and services. So what does a digital future truly look like for Africa? And how can we use mobile to achieve the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals?
