On February 11, in Accra, Ghana’s capital city, A4AI hosted its first-ever in-country forum. The meeting united around 50 diverse players such as policy makers, technology pioneers, civil society groups, campaigners and researchers. Attendees shared insights and hammered out plans for a new, long-term national plan designed to empower Ghana to slash broadband costs via lasting policy change and technological innovation.
Participants included Dr. Edward Kofi Omane Boamah, Ghana’s Honourable Minister of Communications; Estelle Akofio Sowah, Head of Google in Ghana; Kwaku Saakyi Addo, Chief Executive Officer at Ghana Chamber of Telecommunications; a number of leading Ghanaian academics and researchers; senior representatives from all the key operators in Ghana; and civil society members.
Based on the principles of consultation and open dialogue, we hope that this meeting will plant the seeds of long-term change in Ghana. We’re delighted to have been invited by the Government of Ghana, and are determined to play our part in ensuring that affordable broadband and universal access become a reality for all Ghanaians.
