AfICTA 2015 to host African CEO Roundtable on future internet

African business leaders including thirty Chief Executive Officers from Nigeria will gather in Abuja this Tuesday for the 2015 Chief Executive Officer's round table organized by the Africa ICT Alliance, (AfICTA) with the theme "Mobilizing African Business Leaders for the future of the Internet" reports ITRealms.

According to AfICTA Chairman, Dr. Jimson Olufuye, the issues germane to African continuous growth and development would top the agenda.

For him, there has been little voice by African business leaders in internet governance, pointing out that the forum would activate wider African business voices and content on the global business discourse in the area of Internet Governance, Domain Name System industry, cyber and information security, Intellectual property rights, create access to venture capitals to enhance, sustainable business, and articulate and advise on strategic policy for business and governance.

The forum, he said attract speakers like the Director-General of National Information Technology Development Agency (NITDA), Mr. Peter Jack, Dr M.O. Afolabi, the Trade and Transport Enabling Environment Lead at the USAID West Africa Trade Hub Network and African Partnership Project, Pierre Dandjinou , ICANN's Vice President of Stakeholder Engagement for the Africa region, Dr Waudo Siganga, Chairman Computer Society of Kenya, Marilyn Cade, President of ICT Strategies, mCADE LLC, USA among other international speakers.

Olufuye explained that the exclusive business leaders’ forum will be conducted each year across member African economies giving consideration for national business leaders’ voice to be active national, regional and global engagement in Internet public policy discourse.
