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.

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.
