This is in any case the ambition displayed by the country that has just joined the Alliance Smart Africa whose objective is to promote good quality internet services on the African continent.

The Smart Africa Alliance expanded to four new members at its May 2017 congress in Kigali. These are Cameroon, Tunisia, Sao Tome and Principe and South Africa.

From now on, the Alliance, which now has 18 members, is now growing to 22 member countries. New memberships that allow this organization launched in 2013 in Rwanda to gain more importance and expand the implementation of its goal of a connected Africa.

In addition to these accessions, the meeting in Kigali was also an opportunity for many participating States to sign partnerships, as did Niger and Rwanda, which initialed a Memorandum of Understanding Exchange in the field of information and communication technologies.

To this will be added the Kigali declaration on gender, which aims to reduce the digital divide between men and women.
