On Thursday 11th May, in representation of the President of the Republic, H. E. Obiang Nguema Mbasogo, the Prime Minister of the Government, Francisco Pascual Obama Asue, attended the Third Transform Africa Summit, in Kigali (Rwanda).
The summit was held under the banner “Intelligent cities”. Member states are opting for new technologies in order to achieve sustainable development on the African continent. Transform Africa is a summit held annually, and brings together senior dignitaries from the continent, business leaders from the new technologies sector, and young entrepreneurs, men and women from the world of information technology. Technology is a source of development due to its involvement in all sectors of society, but without good policies this development will not be possible, said H. E. Paul Kagami, President of Rwanda.
The Prime Minister of the Government, Francisco Pascual Obama Asue, for his part, showed optimism in his speech, and pointed out that Equatorial Guinea was fighting to achieve intelligent cities, something which is becoming a reality thanks to the work of the Government in the country; as is the case of the construction of the Information Technology Centre in Djibloho, which has its doors open to all young people wishing to train in the sector.
During his speech, Obama Asue declared that technology was a priority in the world today, and asked those at the summit to come together and adopt the best strategies for a better Africa.
The initiative from H. E. Paul Kagami, praised by those present, has grown been growing recently, since the first summit was held in Kigali in 2016.
