Bank Group’s Information & Communications Technologies (ICT) Operations Strategy

19-Aug-2008

In recent years, Africa has made impressive but uneven progress in developing basic ICT infrastructure. While, largely driven by the private sector, mobile telephony penetration is moving up fast – over 30% in 2008 –, other areas such as broadband internet haven’t followed suit – with only 5 African countries with a penetration higher than 1% in 2008. In an increasingly “virtual” global economy, this digital divide is a growing impediment to Africa’s growth.
