About The Summit The 2014 African Growth Through Technology summit (AGTTS) will attempt to bring the public and private sector together over a three day period (5th, 6th and 7th of March 2014) at Kairaba Beach Hotel, The Gambia to discuss, educate and showcase the possibilities and determine ways in which Africa can achieve its technology ambitions through private business. The objective here is a three day long event where different groups from a diverse array of backgrounds and industries can come together to discuss experiences and determine a concrete methodology that can be used by the public sector, NGOs and other businesses, to engage private technology companies to achieve concrete results and success through mutually beneficial alliances. The proposed theme is: FOCUSING PRIVATE BUSINESS AND GOVERNMENT INVESTMENTS TO CONVERT EXISTING TECHNOLOGY INVESTMENT INTO A NATIONAL RESOURCE THAT WILL OPEN LARGE MARKETS TO CREATE A NEW SUSTANABLE EXPORT SECTOR FOR AFRICAN COUNTRIES. This summit is long overdue and the time for it is now. The spot light is on Africa and the world is looking to Africa to drive the next 20 years of growth. African's must cash in and compete at the end of this.
