Government has commended Huawei’s involvement in pushing the country’s digitization agenda for rendering extensive Internet Protocol (IP) training for Ghanaian beneficiaries to leverage on the opportunities created in the global digital space.
Speaking during the 2019 Huawei Ghana IP Gala event which also coincided with the official launch of Huawei Ghana IP Club in Accra last Thursday, Deputy Minister of Communications, Mr. George Andah expressed optimism that the formation of the IP Club was a timely intervention in Ghana’s digital agenda initiative.
According to him, the move will enable Information Communication Technology (ICT) professionals in the country be able to compete with their foreign counterparts, thus entreated that more private sector players must follow such similar initiative to achieve Ghana’s overall digitization agenda.
Huawei Ghana IP Club seeks to bring all IP and ICT professionals in Ghana under one umbrella to share ideas, learn from each other and leverage on Huawei’s vast global experience to keep up to date with the all latest industry trends. This would in turn contribute to adding value to the beneficiaries as the country also stands to benefit from their contribution in the ICT sector.
The objective of the Club is to serve as a platform for industry collaboration geared towards joint innovation and continuous improvement to drive industry growth.
Organized on the theme: Rethink IP for Digital Economy, the Huawei Ghana IP Gala was organized to bring together more than 200 ICT experts as well as leading Telecoms Mobile Network Operators, enterprises and global experts from Huawei to have discussions on local and global technological issues.
Some outstanding IP professionals who distinguished themselves in the recent Huawei training were awarded. The ICT Giant has planned and executed more than 70 IP Gala events in nearly 30 countries, attracting an audience of about 5000 technical experts from all industries.
