President Uhuru is delighted to have presided over the opening of the UNCTAD Africa Regional E-Commerce Week. This Forum is a major milestone event for UNCTAD and Kenya, since it is the first time it is being held in Africa.
For Africa to benefit from e-commerce and the digital economy, the policy environment has to be conducive. It is, therefore, of utmost importance, that appropriate attention should be given to this sector.
President Uhuru said that his Administration has been in the frontline in promoting the use of digital technology to enhance delivery of services to our Citizens.
The objective has been to reduce the cost and time taken by citizens and businesses to get government services.
Innovations such as M-pesa mobile money transfer have put Kenya on the global technology map. I will therefore continue to promote technology innovations by ensuring conducive policy environment, which balance between innovation and regulation to ensure Kenya remains ahead in ICT,’’he said.
As we progress in implementing the big 4 agenda, the elements of Digital Economy will be instrumental in planning for the industries of the future.
I look forward to getting more ideas that can strengthen our resolve to enhance a manufacturing sector that is competitive,’’said president Uhuru.
