The Office of the President in collaboration with the Ministry of Communication is organizing the Ghana Digital Roadmap Conference.

The conference is on the theme: ‘Moving Ghana Beyond Aid: Expanding the Local Digital Economy.’

According to a statement issued by the Ministry of Communications, the conference would begin on Wednesday, May 15 and end on Thursday, May 16.

The Conference, the statement indicated, is to review the Information and Communication Technology for Accelerated Development (ICT4AD) policy document in line with digital opportunities.

It is also to generate ideas aimed at developing a digital strategy and an implementation plan to establish Ghana as the leader in ICT innovation in Sub-Sahara Africa by 2023.

Further, it says “the Conference seeks to review where we are and establish the gaps that must be plugged to establish Ghana as the leader in ICT innovation in Sub-Sahara Africa by 2023.”

The review of the ICT4AD policy document and the development of the digital strategy is driven by President Akufo-Addo’s vision to move Ghana Beyond Aid and Ghana’s commitment to SDG 9 and AU’s Digital Economy for Africa Moonshot targets, it said.

Speakers at the Conference would include Vice President Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia, Minister of Communications, Ursula Owusu-Ekuful, Prof. Frimpong Boateng, Minister for Environment Science and Technology, Dr. Ernest Addison, Governor, Bank of Ghana, Joe Anokye, Director-General, National Communications Authority.
