It is now widely accepted that investment in the growth of ICT infrastructure and services contributes to economic growth and transformation and improvements in the quality of life. In order to reap the benefits of ICT and move towards a Better Connected World countries must accelerate their digitization process through open collaboration with stakeholders across the ICT ecosystem.

Over the last decade, Kenya has experienced substantial growth in ICT and is ranked among the top five African Countries, with the fastest growth in telecommunication infrastructure and mobile money innovations. Through cooperation with key stakeholders Huawei believes that they have made major contributions to the growth of Kenya’s ICT industry in areas of Network Infrastructure, Enterprise and Devices, and long may this cooperation continue.

Information and Communications Technology (ICT) represents an enormous opportunity to introduce significant and lasting positive change not just in Kenya but also across the African continent.

Therefore, it is essential to improve connectivity in rural and remote areas, as well as to close gaps in broadband backbone networks, to provide the ICT infrastructure that enables the multitude of converged services including e services that will follow. It is an indispensable component in the development of the information society and the building of a knowledge economy that will facilitate not just a better connected Kenya but also a better connected Africa.
