As part of a series of cultural initiatives, the EU Delegation to the AU recently organised "Africa-Europe Creatives Connect", a one-day workshop that brought together top creatives and culture shapers from the two continents, in Addis Ababa. With the aim of knowledge sharing and networking, six speakers shared their unique insights in TED-style interventions.
Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) in Africa have evolved significantly during recent decades. Still, in comparison with other continents Africa lags behind, for example in terms of widely available and affordable broadband access. Generally affordable and accessible ICT services have the potential to generate tremendous benefits such as more competitive markets, social inclusive growth and more equitable development.
