Panel Discussion on Technology as an enabler of socio-economic development in India/Africa


In this EXCELLENT discussion, pioneers Mo Ibrahim, Sanjiv Ahuja, and Sunil Mittal reflect on how technology and governance is enabling development

A GREAT discussion about technology as an enabler of socio-economic development in India and Sub Saharan Africa. This does focus heavily on the mobile industry...but they do have an understanding of the issues. The panelists include Sunil Mittal, Sanjiv Ahuja, and Mo Ibrahim. Its wonderful and refreshing to hear Indians and Africans who are educated and successful, educated about the issues, and care to rebuild their countries. (You have no idea how rare this is...which is part of the problem!)

me too! I've never met him, but he seems to be a phenomenal human being. But I do feel for him. He's become the go-to guy to "save Africa."

More Africans need to step up. There are several out there who are successful and capable of doing something great for their people. Its about time they do so.
