June 10, 2014  »  ICT PolicyOne Comment

The second edition of the Africa Internet Summit (AIS) was held in Djibouti in early June 2014 under the theme “Beyond connection: Internetworking for African Development.”

AIS, a regional multi-stakeholder ICT conference, is a key educational and business ICT event in Africa that aims to bring under one roof the ICT business and technical community in Africa to discuss ICT issues and challenges. After all, sharing ICT knowledge is a crucial part of formulating new policies and applying ideas within the sustainable African development context.
