State of the Industry: Mobile as a Platform for Achieving SDGs in Africa
The pervasive nature of mobile technology offers a unique platform for improving and enhancing social and economic development across Africa. Given the low levels of coverage and penetration in the region, the mobile industry has the potential to drive significant change through improving the accessibility of its services, in particular to the poor and those in remote areas.
But in addition to increasing the reach of mobile services, it is equally important for the industry to play a leading role in promoting transparency and ethical business practices within its own operations and across the supply chain. This keynote session will discuss how the industry can drive significant impact across business and support Africa in achieving the Sustainable Development Goals.
