It's an international high-level conference that will be held in Rwanda from October 28 to 31 and co-hosted by President Paul Kagame and Dr. Hamadoun Toure, the Secretary General of the International Telecommunication Union (ITU).
International institutions like Visa International, World Bank, Carnegie Mellon University, Africa Development Bank, Africa Digital Media Academy and Korea Telecom are some of the key partners in organising the summit.
The objective of the event is to set new agenda for the use of new ICTs for the development of Africa.
Six years ago Rwanda took the lead and mobilised the whole continent and the world around through 'Connect Africa Summit' and that agenda has spread across the globe where we have now Connect Asia, Connect Americas among others.
