Are we ready for the true impact of the fourth industrial revolution?

Africa has the fastest growing population in the world and yet, remains a complex and nuanced market of cultures and urban-rural divides. With improving access, knowledge and price points, the use of technology is transforming the services and needs of consumers across the region.

This session will examine the impact of change on both a national and local level. How ready are we to transition to digital, and what are the true implications on the job market, education and inclusivity for the region?
