Minister Siyabonga Cwele addresses GovTech 2O16 Conference and Integrated ICT Policy White Paper Symposium in Midrand, 31 Oct

The Minister of Telecommunications and Postal Services Dr Siyabonga Cwele will address the GovTech 2O16 Conference and then later, the Integrated ICT Policy White Paper Symposium on 31 October 2016. Both events will be held in Midrand.

The GovTech Conference is in its 11th year and the 2016 theme is ICT For Development, Access and Growth. The conference is hosted by SITA and brings together senior representatives of national, provincial and some local governments, the private sector, including emerging businesses.

The Gauteng Premier Mr David Makhura is scheduled to lead the Provincial Government’s participation at the conference.

The Integrated ICT Policy White Paper Policy Symposium seeks to deepen the debate on the ICT White Paper that was approved by Cabinet in September 2016. It brings together policy makers, organised business and organised labour.

Both engagements are aligned to the growing importance that the Government attached to access and use of internet to improve service delivery and the empowerment of citizens.
