Mozambique gears up for AITEC 2011

Vodacom has announced its platinum sponsorship of the 2011 AITEC Mozambique ICT Congress, to be held in Maputo in October.

This year’s event will focus on the theme: “Building on local skills and capacity to develop effective ICT solutions that address local needs.”

The Congress will take place at Joaquim Chissano International Conference Centre over 5-6 October.

Announcing Vodacom’s sponsorship of the congress, MD José dos Santos said: “The annual ICT Congress has a vital role to play in developing the country’s ICT community and Vodacom is proud to be associated with it, taking the lead in providing the industry support that the event needs to maximize its positive impact in the market. We particularly applaud this year’s focus on capacity-building, because it is a core part of Vodacom’s mission to develop local skills.”

Other sponsors of the event include Internet Solutions and SkyeVine.

Among the topics to come under discussion at the conference will be banking the unbanked, the state of Africa’s broadband networks, and roadmaps to small business success.

The AITEC Mozambique ICT Congress is now in its fourth year and is established as the leading computing and communications industry event for the country’s rapidly growing sector, attended each year by over 500 managers, professionals and other decision-makers in government and business.
