Africa must go digital

When someone asks me what standards I want to have in my companies, I say: the best. We must always strive to raise standards to be competitive. This was my sharing at the ECR Africa Summit 2019, which took place in the European Parliament in Brussels.

In the panel I took part – Africa and the emerging technologies – we debated the importance of digitization and technology in Africa. It is with pride that today I see the role of our companies in the digitization in Angola. Nowadays, at Unitel, we promote the expansion of the internet throughout the country, with one of the most modern telecommunications networks in Africa. We unite people, connect companies, support business and see our country grow, develop and compete internationally.

We make a difference every day. And we do so because we are Africans, we believe in Angola and we believe that in Africa local entrepreneurs can do a lot if they are given the right opportunity and the right vision. This way we are contributing to the country’s own growth, creating jobs, developing businesses and creating opportunities.
