Indo-Africa ICT Expo excites Shittu, attracts industry players

The forthcoming Indo-Africa conference on Information and Communication Technology (ICT) has drawn the excitement of the Honourable Minister of Communication, Barrister Abdul-Raheem Adebayo Shittu, reports ITRealms.

Reacting to the recent endorsement of the conference by his Indian counterpart, Shittu promised Nigeria’s cooperation and participation to ensure a successful and worthwhile event for the good of India and Nigeria as well as the ICT industry in general.

“We are delighted about the idea of this event, and from Nigeria we will put in our best to ensure the programme comes out very well,” he declared, stressing that India and Nigeria share a lot in common, and ICT currently being very topical globally, it is in the interest of both countries to pool resources to deliver results for their common peoples.

ITRealms gathered from the organisers, the Telecom Equipment and Services Export Promotion Council (TEPC) that the event would include a key highlight by ICT Ministers’ Roundtable Meeting scheduled for September 6, on the theme ‘Digital Vision of the Developing Nations.”

This, ITRealms further gathered from the organisers, would be a platform for ministers to present and share the ICT visions of their countries over the next five years, thereby showcasing partnership opportunities that such vision would bring to the industry at large for the two regions.

TEPC is working in conjunction with the National Association of Software and Service Companies, (NASSCOM), which is the premier trade body and the chamber of commerce of the IT-BPM industries in India. NASSCOM is a global trade body with more than 1800+ members, which include both Indian and multinational companies that have a presence in India.

Also TEPC is partnering with industry associations in Nigeria, including the Information Technology Association of Nigeria (ITAN), Association of Licensed Telecom Operators of Nigeria (ALTON), Association of Telecom Companies of Nigeria (ATCON), Institute of Software Practitioners of Nigeria (ISPON), Nigeria Computer Society (NCS) as well as the Computer and Allied Products Dealers Association of Nigeria (CAPDAN) to make the event a full industry-focused programme.

ITAN President, Mr. Tayo Adeniyi, ALTON Chairman, Engr. Gbenga Adebayo, ATCON President, Engr. Olusola Teniola, among others, have so far been listed to speak at the event, while more are to be confirmed as the days go by.
