Ministerial Programme (Invite Only)
Tech in Society

Date & Time

Wednesday, 28 Feb

11:30 - 13:00


Hall 4 Auditorium B


In regions where education can cost up to a half of a household’s income, mobile is helping to expand and improve access to educational content for families in need. Through increased connectivity and government support, mobile can open new markets to the benefits of education and the digital economy.

What steps can mobile operators take to partner with start-ups to provide more locally relevant content and support future education?  And how can education and investment address the digital skills gap, promoting innovation to drive further socio-economic development?
