On Wednesday, 15 May 2019, Ghana’s Vice-President Dr Mahamudu Bawumia participated in the first day of the Ghana Digital Roadmap Conference on the theme: Moving Ghana Beyond Aid: Expanding the local digital economy in Accra.

The conference is to review the Information and Communication Technology for Accelerated Development (ICT4AD) policy document in line with digital opportunities and generate ideas to develop a strategy and an implementation plan to establish Ghana as the leader in ICT innovation in Africa by 2023.

Speaking at the conference, Dr Bawumia stressed the importance the government of Ghana attaches to the ongoing digitisation agenda, emphasising that a digitised, formal economy is a crucial tool of the Ghana Beyond Aid agenda.

“Now is the time to take a critical look at our seminal ICT policy document, the ICT for Accelerated Development Policy, identify gaps and recommend changes required to provide the right framework to harness Ghana’s digital economy and also nurture our local ICT industry,” Dr Bawumia said.
