The vision of this centre is to shape the trajectory of Rwanda’s digital transformation through progressive technology governance that is agile and human-centred, in order to respond to the most pressing challenges for us as a country and for the broader benefit of Africa.
As we work to create more intelligent, connected, and resilient societies, the centre has prioritized data governance as a foundational enabler for growth.
Today, we are launching our Centre for the Fourth Industrial Revolution, in partnership with the World Economic Forum.
Africa has a young generation of innovators
Home to the world’s most youthful population, Africa is producing a generation of future innovators, entrepreneurs, and government leaders who have grown up surrounded by technology.
Many young Africans have been surrounded by cutting-edge technology since childhood: they may have only conducted financial transactions using their mobile phones, and know drones as the primary delivery mechanism for blood and medical supplies.
