Enabling ICT4D (Policy and Practice Dialogue Session)

Zimbabwe‘s economic blueprint – ZIM ASSET - has identified the ICT sector as one of the key drivers and strategies for employment creation, improving service delivery and accelerated economic growth[1]. So far, substantial progress has been made in strengthening the ICT backbone in terms of infrastructure, policy and legal frameworks, mobile and Internet penetration, as well as skills and competences. Key stakeholders are now engaged in the broader consultations on how best to tap into the potential that lies into this sector and indeed enable economic transformation and growth.

It is against this background, a policy and practice session is convened to reflect on the key pillars of a digital economy – as a backbone upon which ICTs can lead to growth; the role of policy and legal environment as an enabler and finally, the place of strategic private-public partnerships within a digital economy. This guided discussion will be grounded within the broader macro and micro-economic landscape.
SPEAKERS:       

Mrs. Geogina Chingonzo, AG PD, MoICTPCS (The role of Policy and legal environment as an enabler)
Ms. Ethel Bangwayo (National Economist, UNDP Zimbabwe): Key economic Priorities and lingering challenges
Mr. Taps Murove (Operations Manager, Hypercube) (Reflecting on ICT infrastructure, Skills and Compentences and Access to Markets as the key pillars of a Digital Economy
