16th Annual E-Gov Africa Forum 2012 - Commonwealth Telecommunications Organisation
Start Date: Mar 05, 2012
End Date: Mar 07, 2012
Venue: Gaborone International Convention Center, Grand Palm Hotel
Description: Gaborone Prepares for CTO's Flagship E-Gov Africa Forum in early March

Under the patronage of the Republic of Botswana, the Commonwealth Telecommunications Organisation's 6th Annual E-Gov Africa Forum 2012 will be hosted from March 5 to 7, 2012 by the Botswana Telecommunications Corporation in collaboration with national regulator and CTO Member, the Botswana Telecommunication Authority.

The Vice President of Botswana, H E Mompati Merafhe, is expected to inaugurate the opening ceremony as the guest of honour at the state-of-the-art Gaborone International Convention Center together with Hon. Nonofo Molefhi, Minister of Transport and Communications. Special addresses will be delivered by the Permanent Secretary and by the Deputy Permanent Secretary of the Ministry. Also in attendance are Thari Pheko, CEO of BTA, Paul Taylor, CEO of BTC and Alan Boshwaen, CEO, Botswana Innovation Hub.

The speaker faculty includes high-level representatives from ICT implementing agencies in Ghana, Mauritius, Uganda and Kenya, the Cybercrime Convention Committee of the Council of Europe, the World Bank, World Health Organisation, the Commonwealth Parliamentary Association and the Governance and Institutional Development division of the Commonwealth Secretariat.

Some of our thought-provoking discussions and debate this year centre on:

  • The role of ICTs in strengthening trust between parliament and the people
  • Effective governance with smarter e-Government strategies
  • Walking the tightrope: Security vs Privacy in e-Governance
  • ICTs and the Arab Spring: Implications for Democracy
  • How can local and central government content be made available for mGov?
  • How can ICTs deliver qualitative health services to rural Africa?

Industry has come out in strong support of the event with a number of major global players committed to attend the event.

The host, Botswana Telecommunications Corporation, will organise a gala reception at the Gaborone International Convention Centre and a farewell reception over a Bush Braai following a safari at Mokolodi Nature Reserve. ZTE will host another dinner for honoured guests, speakers and delegates at a nearby resort. RIM and Fujistu and the Botswana Innovation Hub will also provide hospitality to attendees.

If you haven't already, become a part of this pivotal event by registering online or by fax. We look forward to welcoming you to Gaborone!
