Organizers said the three-day event will give an opportunity to Information and communication technologies to voice their views, insights, knowledge and share experiences at the forum, which is Africa’s leading e-government conference.

The Forum will attract Ministers of Technology, heads of e-government projects, civil society leaders and representatives from IT organizations including mobile operators, infrastructure providers, foundations, development and donor agencies to discuss current issues and witness success stories on e-government in Africa.

Commonwealth Telecommunications Organisation (CTO), which is organizing the event, said the forum will see the participation of Ministers of Technology in the continent, heads of e-government projects, civil society leaders and representatives from IT organizations including mobile operators among other stakeholders.

“The CTO is honoured that this year the Ministry of Science and Technology, Rwanda will be hosting the 3rd Annual African e-Gov Forum.

“Key ICT stakeholders in the region, including Ministers of technology, heads of e-Gov projects, civil society leaders and representatives from IT organisations, mobile operators, infrastructure providers, foundations, development and donor agencies will discuss current issues and witness success stories on e-Gov in Africa,” it said.

CTO is an international development partnership between Commonwealth and non-Commonwealth governments, business and civil society organisations.

The organisation provides the international community with effective means to help bridge the digital divide and achieve social and economic development, by delivering to developing countries unique knowledge-sharing programmes in the use of Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) in the specific areas of Telecommunications, IT, Broadcasting and the Internet.

Last year, Uganda hosted the e-government forum–ITNewsAfrica.
