Chad's ICT minister met potential technology partners in India

Chad launched a new strategic digital and post-development plan in 2020, demonstrating the government's desire to keep pace with technology. The country needs experienced partners to implement the projects of the said plan.

The Republic of Chad wants to accelerate its digital transformation. The N'Djamena authorities want to further integrate information and communication technologies into the various strategic socio-economic sectors. To this end, Telecommunications and Digital Economy Minister Mahamat Allahou Taher paid a working visit to India. The aim is to meet the actors who can support Chad in this project.

On social networks, the Ministry of Digital Economy announced that the Chadian delegation would be in New Delhi on Monday, May 22 “ explored new opportunities for cooperation and technical assistance within the framework of the implementation of major projects of the strategic digital and post-development plan for the period 2020-2030 “.

The delegation met stakeholders and officials from various institutions including Chamber of Commerce, Airtel Group and Indian Minister for Railways, Electronic Communications and Information Technology Ashwini Vaishnaw.

Let us recall that two years ago, Chad adopted a strategic digital development plan (PSDNP 20-30), which is intended to serve as a roadmap for the decade 2020-2030. For the implementation of PSDNP projects, the government estimates the need at 1,452 billion FCFA (2.4 billion USD).

India’s decision to support it in carrying out these projects is a wise one. In less than 10 years, the digital penetration rate in India has more than doubled.
