The ICT Africa Conference will be held in Akra, Ghana during the period from 12 to 14 July 2007. The Conference will be preceded by a workshop on Spectrum Management under the titles of: “Spectrum Management in the era of Convergence: focus on Africa”.
Convergence has become one of the major topics owing to the various and ever-changing regulatory challenges. These challenges require the study of the best possible solutions and coordination between all regulators in order to become familiar with the experiences of stakeholders. This is what the workshop is seeking to attain through the examination of a number of issues:
The current regulatory policies and Spectrum Management in comparison with the best experiences in the international arena in order to reform and adjust policies in Africa.
The impact of convergence on Spectrum Management.
Pricing services and licensing them with regards to Spectrum Management.
The discussion of the issues of the World Radiocommunication Conference
In this respect, Egypt organized a significant and extensive conference, that is, Regulation in the Era of Convergence in Sharm El Sheikh last March.
The ICT Africa Conference, that will be held immediately after the Workshop, will focus on the technical and economic aspects of ICT industry in Africa. The Conference will discuss the decrease in modern ICT technology costs. Hence, this will pave the way for more investments in all ICT sectors.
Moreover, the Conference will examine a number of patterns in order to attain a more effective intercommunication between the African countries. This aims to develop and promote the investments and business opportunities. Also, the Conference will review a number of investments and enterprises which some banks supported.
Egypt’s participation in this Conference accords with Egypt’s keenness to highlight the African cooperation in ICT sector and back up all actions taken with the aim of exchanging expertise or augmenting investments among the African countries.
