ICT Summit 2012
THEME: ICT – an integral part of everyday lives
The Telecom Namibia ICT Summit 2012 takes place at the Safari Hotel & Conference Centre in Windhoek, Namibia, from 9-11 October 2012.
Honourable Joël Kaapanda, Minister of Information and Communication Technology will open this prestigious annual national ICT event, under the theme: ICT – an integral part of everyday live.
The three day event brings together industry analysts, IT executives from all sectors of the public and private life, and leading ICT vendors and service providers for uniquely collaborative discussions on today’s pressing telecommunications and IT issues, best practices and the latest tools and technology that will improve the performance of Namibia’s social and business sectors.
Today Information and communication technologies (ICT) are improving at a fascinating rate. ICTs are not simply a way of organising business to improve efficiency and increase competitiveness. The ICT services and infrastructure that enable the digital economy are now an integral part of everyday life. They encompass business, education, freedom of speech, entertainment, as well as social inclusion and health, reaching out to improve the well-being of peoples across the globe.
Thus the theme for this year’s event provides an opportunity for policy makers, industry players and the sector itself to interrogate how best the ICT potential can be realised as Namibia moves towards Vision 2030.
