DSA forum on IG4D gets March date

Nkemdilim Nweke, Executive Director, DigitalSENSE Africa
The 2012 edition of the Nigerian DigitalSENSE Africa (DSA) Forum series on Internet Governance for Development (IG4D) has been slated to hold in March between 8 and 9 at its usual venue, Golden Gate Paradise, Ikoyi-Lagos.

The Executive Director, Operations at DigitalSENSE Africa, the organizers of the forum, Mrs. Nkemdilim Nweke said that the March date was taken after adequate consideration on other industry events billed for this year.

She also said at the weekend that already, stakeholders have started taking space of participation in the two-day forum, which prepares Nigerians and stakeholders alike on the importance of participating on the global Internet Governance Forum (IGF).

According to her, the previous three years have seen the Nigeria DigitalSENSE Forum series recording resounding success each year and serving as a roundtable for discussion of Information and Communication Technology (ICT) issues with particular reference to Internet Governance (IG).

She said that this year’s forum theme would be on ‘Internet Governance and Mobile Economy in Nigeria.’ 
Highlighting the importance of the theme, Mrs. Nweke said that with the licensing of some companies by the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) to operate mobile money, it has become crucial to explore this in line with laws of the land and relevant regulations in comparison with the global best practices.

She further said that the fact that these licensees tend to drive their services to Nigerians based on mobile networks already existing makes it imperative to create more awareness on the subject and how it would affect Nigerians and Internet community in the country.

Mrs. Nweke confirmed that the two-day event would hold at the prestigious Golden Gate Paradise, Ikoyi-Lagos with several speakers already filing in for the event both offshore and within the country.

She, therefore, enjoined notable Internet Service Providers (ISP), Value Added Service (VAS) providers, network vendors, telecom operators and mobile money operatives and consumer groups to take active part in the forum.

Thanks for the info. I don't have an iPad 2 yet, but played with one and love it. Unfortunately, they're completely sold out of stock, but I'm hoping to pick one up soon (I prefer the black one) and this info will come in handy. Business Web Hosting
