Advancing Economic Recovery & Growth through Technology, Interest Group Set to Hold Stakeholder Summit

In our fast-paced world driven by technological innovation, Nigeria as the “Giant of Africa” has to take center stage in spear heading the conversations on how best to employ technology to better shape the economy and drive national development.

Scheduled to hold from the 13TH – 15TH of December 2017, the Technology in Government Summit and Exhibitions is a strategic intervention created to bring together high level, public sector focused audience, stakeholders alongside market leaders in ICT and emerging digital (disruptive) transformational technologies.

The three-day event which is set to hold at the Crystal Palace Hotels (The Exclusive Haven) Abuja, will showcase the best in class government projects and technology implementations, while driving the discussion on the future of public sector service delivery as well as offering innovative strategies for a more effective technology enabled public sector.
