Addis Abeba is to host the 11th Innovation Africa Summit 2013 from March 19 to 21, 2013 for the second consecutive year.
The summit is expected to bring together close to 350 organisations from around the world, including large information and communications technology (ICT) companies, minister delegations and international solution providers.
It will focus on the need to create sustainable national growth and development in the African telecom and ICT ecosystem, according to a press release by the Office of Government Communications.
This year's summit, which is to be conducted with the theme: "National Broadband Strategies and Agendas -Acceleration and Alignment," is believed to be a platform for Ethiopia to showcase its current strength, as well as future development plans, according to the press release.
The Ministry of Communications & Information Technology (MCIT), six months ago, signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with Extensia Ltd to organise the event. Extensia provides essential support services, to policy makers, regulators, service providers, major end users, and solution providers across the African telecom and ICT ecosystem.
