“Technology will continue to progress and there will be new innovations to transform the society and the way we do business. It is clear that a lot of things have changed because now with your mobile phone you can control all your equipment at home irrespective of your location. Also, services rendered by businesses and government agencies are being automated rapidly and with artificial intelligence, results are getting better. Our focus at Inlaks, he continued, is to ensure that the society gets better and the labour market gets the value at the end of the day. People need to up their skills irrespective of their profession, do something different and must have an idea of current happenings. One needs to also have an open mind and be prepared for the coming disruptions”.
Also at the event was Ghana’s Vice-President, Dr Mahamudu Bawumia, who served as the special guest of honour. He was also adjudged the Digital Leader of the Year 2019.
In his address, the Vice-President lauded the collaborative role the private sector has played in the successful rollout of several programmes in the government’s digitisation agenda. “The digitalisation process that we have embarked on in the past two and half years has however been cost-effective. Our payment systems have continued to evolve to meet the developmental needs of the country. This change is driven by economic, financial, public policy practice as well as a growing local ICT regime and global trends in the payment systems development,” Dr Bawumia noted.
The GIITA Awards is an annual ceremony that honours organisations and individuals who have proven to be beacons of innovation and excellence in the telecommunications and Information Technology sector in Ghana.
