Speaking at the opening, the chairman of the board of directors at Angola’s Instituto Angolano das Comunicações (INACOM), Pedro Mendes de Carvalho, said Angola was one of the world’s fastest-growing ICT economies.
He said the courses to be offered at the centre would benefit all stakeholders.
He noted that Angola’s ICT strategy was now in its second phase – aiming to strengthen its market structure; with phase three – consolidation of African leadership and customer focus – the strategy from 2015.
