Africa and the Middle East II 2021 media pack

by david.nunes

The AME Media Pack describes the next edition of the magazine including: the overarching theme, contributors to date in name order, and the ICT event[s] at which, because we are one of the official media partners, the magazine will be freely distributed.

The Africa & Middle East editions of the magazine concentrate on discussing the impact of ICT on countries and emerging markets in the region.

Past editions have extensively treated important issues such as the ‘digital divide’ in AME, that is the gap between those connected, and those not connected, to modern mass communications.

Further, how ICT is impacting the development of national and regional economies.  The magazine has also treated the role of ICT in disaster management.

Theme: How is ICT helping AME countries recover from COVID 19?

Supporting digital competitiveness can help economies recover from the COVID-19 pandemic.

Foreign direct investment in the digital economy can especially help bring technology,
know-how, jobs and growth to developing countries.

What are some policies, regulations and measures that governments can adopt to attract digital foreign
direct investment?

COVID-19 has changed the way we live and work almost overnight. Analysts are struggling to keep pace
with the impact on economies, sectors and firms. One thing that we already
know, however, is that this crisis is accelerating an already growing trend towards digitalization.

From virtual meetings to automated factories, online orders to drone delivery, digital services are
growing in importance, permeating an increasing number of sectors and activities. Digitally agile firms are adapting 
to the ongoing crisis more successfully, and others are rapidly skilling up in response to challenges to their business models.

For governments looking to drive economic recovery after the pandemic, supporting such digital
competitiveness will be key. One way is through foreign direct investment (FDI) in the digital economy, in other words, “Digital FDI.”
