African Experts Say Digital Skills Key to Economic Growth

Experts at the Regional Forum for the Partnership for Skills in Applied Sciences, Engineering and Technology in Kigali say that there is a huge gap to bridge in efforts to equip the youth of Africa with digital skills for the future. With a rapidly growing youth population and 11 million new graduates entering the African job market annually, experts urge that it is imperative that Africa adapts its education ecosystem to ensure its ability to offer relevant training.
