This year’s theme, “Accelerating Digital Transformation in challenging times” challenged us all to converge in our various forums and platforms to determine successes and challenges we, each, faced in accelerating transformation during the pandemic. In January 2021, the ITU Secretary General, Mr Haolin Zhao, invited everyone including the ICT industry, governments, civic organisations and or individual citizens to each contribute their unique perspective/s and share their experiences, based on the WTISD2021 theme. Certainly, Regulators would have their own story to tell! That is how co-creation begins.

Plans for hosting WTISD 2022 are already afoot. We hope to coordinate with countries from the eight African regional economic communities (RECs), as per the ATU. Next year, partner countries shall organize their own country-specific celebrations and stream their celebrations on our platform, amongst others. These countries shall co-host the 2022 event with us using our much improved and strength-tested platform.

We invite ideas and inputs on how best we can deliver #WITSID2022 to be emailed to wtisd2022@ictchamber.org.za

See you at #WTISD2022
