• EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

       

      The formation of the Pan African Information Communication Technology Association (from now on referred to as “PAICTA”) was an inevitable response to a need that all ICT small to medium enterprises (SMEs), Youth, Women, Persons with disabilities and communities in Africa are sitting in a conducive environment for innovation, development and growth. 

       

      PAICTA promotes ICT4D (Information and Communications Technologies for Development) initiatives aimed at bridging the digital divide (the disparity between technological "haves" and "have nots") and aiding economic development by ensuring equitable access to up-to-date communication technologies. PAICTA subscribes to the philosophy of Society 5.0 - an inclusive digital economy inspired by community development and driven by innovative technology solutions. We aim to create a society where we can resolve various social challenges by incorporating the innovations of the Forth industrial revolution (e.g. Programming, IoT, big data, artificial intelligence (AI), Robotics, Data Science, Cybersecurity, Application Development, and sharing economy) into the lives of all Africans. By doing so, the future society will be one in which new values and services are created continuously, making people’s lives more comfortable and promoting sustainability.
