Airtel Africa, a leading provider of telecommunications and mobile money services, has reaffirmed its commitment to unlocking new opportunities and promoting sustainable growth by driving digitalisation across the continent
This affirmation was made by Segun Ogunsanya, group CEO of Airtel Africa, as he met the president of the Republic of Malawi, Lazarus McCarthy Chakwera. The CEO commented the firm plans to boost investments that will support the country’s target of achieving at least 20% Internet access by 2030.
“Our purpose is to transform lives across the continent,” remarked Ogunsanya. “We look forward to working with governments and other actors to bridge the digital and financial gap. Digitalisation has huge potential to create economic opportunities in the continent.”
President Chakawera added, “We have agreed to continue growing our government-to-business partnership with Airtel Africa so that we create meaningful socioeconomic value for all Malawians through pro-growth modern digital services. In the quest to become a self-reliant and industrialised middle income economy, Malawi will count on digital technologies that create new value of our economic system thereby facilitating the creation of sustainable wealth and jobs.”
