There are various pillars of Digital Economy Readiness - Infrastructure - Enabling Policies - Supporting Legal Frameworks and of course a sustainable Technology Talent Value Chain.

With a growing youth population and unemployment rates over 30% in many countries across the continent the question that should be top of the mind is - are we as Africans sufficiently investing in the future of our human capital on the continent?

Global research data shows that 60% of children under 12 today, will grow up to work in jobs that don’t exist yet. Furthermore an extensive new Korn Ferry report finds that by 2030, more than 85 million jobs globally could go unfilled because there aren’t enough skilled people to take them - this presents an $8.5Trn opportunity for the taking.

Governments and organizations across the continent must make talent development strategies a key priority and take steps to educate, train, and upskill the youth in order to tap into the human capital opportunities of the Digital Economy and drive socio economic development and growth.

This panel will look at how we can close the skills gap, while building a globally accessible pool of talent and ensuring that the continent can fully participate in the Digital Economy. We will also explore opportunities and sustainable models of building and expanding the African Technology Talent Value Chain
