Panelists at the 4th Tech 360 Africa Summit held in Accra have unanimously agreed that the technology space in Africa holds an outstanding promise and will require stakeholders in the Information, Communication and Technology (ICT) to pursue the technology market in order to accelerate Africa’s development efforts.

Contributing to panel discussions on several key topics on technology and innovation, the participants were of the opinion that innovation has become a critical aspect of the global economy, hence a need for African economies to integrate and streamline technological processes to catch up with the rest of the world.
