Wednesday marked Ghana Day at ITU Telecom World with a chance for people to visit the Ghana Pavilion and learn more about the work that is being done to reach across the digital divide.

Since then 194 community information centres have been established and 117 masts installed and activated.  Kofi Asante, CEO of The Ghana Investment Fund for Electronic Communications, was on hand to answer questions and introduce representatives from two of the agencies that are instrumental in the programme; GIFEC and NITA.
