At the heart of the summit is the unique format of dedicated pre-scheduled meetings between industry and government ministers and officials. No other African event for digital transformation affords executives the opportunity to schedule their one-to-one meetings in advance with the key government decision-makers. Digital Government Africa is the must attend event for technology companies, digital implementers and best-in-class solution providers.

Over 250 ministers and government officials from 40 African countries will participate in the forum. They urgently need to meet with companies who can improve digital government, national electronic infrastructures, the efficiency of paper-based systems and financial information management and taxation systems. The digital transformation of public sector services in African countries is an essential pillar of government policy to build capacity and develop human capital. Accordingly, the summit will have over 50 dedicated meeting tables representing ministries for:

  • Home Affairs, Interior & Internal Security
  • Information Communications Technology (ICT)
  • Digitalisation and Science, Technology & Innovation
  • Finance
  • National Revenue Authorities
  • National ICT Authorities
