Morocco Eyes Inclusive Digital Future for Africa

Morocco has reiterated determination to reduce the digital divide and promote an inclusive, open and secure digital future for all in Africa.

During the extraordinary session of the African Union’s Specialized Technical Committee on Communication and Information Communications Technology (STC-CICT), the Moroccan delegation, reaffirmed the Kingdom’s commitment to building a prosperous digital future in Africa, and to making the Continent a key player in global economy.

In this regard, the delegation recalled that Morocco is devising its 2030 National Digital Strategy, which aims to accelerate digital transformation and contribute in the socio-economic development of Morocco and the region.

The strategy aims to digitalize public services and boost the country’s digital economy, with a particular focus on digital inclusion, infrastructure and skills building, as well as the development of a dynamic startup ecosystem, the Moroccan delegation added.

“Morocco has launched several initiatives to encourage innovation and digital entrepreneurship, in particular to support young talents, the key players in our digital future”, the Moroccan delegation underlined.

The delegation also pointed out that Morocco has distinguished itself by being among the first countries to adopt the UNESCO Recommendation on the Ethics of Artificial Intelligence, and to work towards its implementation.

The Kingdom has considerable assets to accelerate its digital transformation and to foster the responsible development of artificial intelligence. Recent initiatives include GITEX Africa Morocco, an excellent networking, collaboration and cooperation opportunity for key players in Africa’s digital sector. The event not only showcased innovative “Made in Morocco” and “Made in Africa” solutions, but also attracted the attention of international investors, the Moroccan delegation said.
