“Through your meticulous organisation and effective matchmaking system, we capitalised on networking opportunities to share our mission with participating governments. Undoubtedly, Digital Government Africa will play a pivotal role in the digital transformation across the continent.”
Roman Žnidarič – Executive Director, Cetis

At the heart of the summit is the unique format of dedicated pre-scheduled meetings between industry and government ministers and officials. Digital Government Africa is the must attend event for technology companies, digital implementers and solution providers who wish to advance their business in Africa.

Over 300 ministers and government officials from 30+ 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.

  • Information Communications Technology (ICT), Technology & Science
  • Finance & National Planning
