Reply to: Co-creating a SMART Rwanda, SMART Africa and SMART World
I am very pleased to note the follow-up to Smart Rwanda, under the auspices of Smart Africa event in Kigali Oct 2-3. I look very much forward to hear of the lessons learnt from the last year’s projects, what worked, what did not, what can be scaled up at the country level, and why not, at the continent's level. The commitment of Rwanda to use ICTs to find and implement smart solutions to developmental challenges is very much along the mission of the Transport and ICT Global Practice of the World Bank Group. I hope all of Rwanda’s development partners can participate and follow up, on the long term, towards making this vision a reality.
