The 52nd meeting of the AFRALTI governing council was officially opened in Nairobi with the aim of helping Kenya and African countries to foster the growth of information communication technology and meet the challenges that arise in the sector in relation to globalization of technology.
The Principal Secretary in the Ministry of Communication and Technology, Mr Samuel Itemere said that the AFRALTI (African Advanced Level Telecommunications Institute) meeting will help Kenya and other African countries to foster growth on this particular era when digital capability is much needed.
He says that as we keep globalizing, Kenya and other African countries will need much help in the digital world as the set of skills will be required to help in job and development of opportunities everywhere in Africa as it keeps on changing. He said that in the AFRALTI meeting, the members of states will actually work hand in hand, and prepare for a final tough decision so that the right requirements are met.
Itemere said he will ensure the places that need skills in information technology but aren’t familiar with them will be properly dealt with and serviced, and that the efforts of AFRALTI will cover a wider span in the continent, enabling African countries to adapt with the ever changing face of technology more easily.
The Director General of the Communications Authority of Kenya, added that AFRALTI will highly help to foster growth of information technology in Kenya and other African countries and will help to meet the prevailing needs such as fundamental knowledge that is required in education and mobilization.
The African Advanced Level Telecommunications Institute Director, Mr. Eustace Maboreke said that the time is now for African countries to work together to usher in a new level of information technology communication.
