WASPAG, Ghana

Telecomworld 2017 SME

Participating in the ITU Summit has been very good for WASPAG and our membership. We have already begun to see increased visibility and have improved our relationship with our sector ministry and the regulator. Being at the summit created the space and collaborative spirit to make this happen. During the four days of the event, we built important relationships with regulators in Nigeria and Sierra Leone in particular, as well as developing concrete opportunities for our members as incubator partners in Rwanda, with mhealth solutions in Sierra Leone, and within the innovation hub in Qatar. We look forward to participating in future summits – this event will now feature prominently in our annual plans. We also plan to enter the ITU Telecom World Global SME Awards in the future, and look forward to continued engagement with ITU.
