GSMA Mobile 360 Series - About



Mobile 360 – West Africa welcomed high-ranking leaders from the mobile ecosystem, regulatory bodies, and governments from across West and Central Africa to discuss digitisation efforts across all sectors of the economy in the ECOWAS region.

On day one, we welcomed the ECOWAS Annual Regional Conference, Mobile for Development sessions, and a workshop presented by Mastercard. On day two, we presented a keynote conference focusing on two key drivers of digital adoption: the people and the technology. How are both shaping the Digital Africa we know and the Digital Africa we want?

Mobile 360 – West Africa was organized with the support of the Ministry of Post and ICT of Côte d’Ivoire.
