DCO delegation ends Rwanda visit, launching Global Roundtable series
Published in The Saudi Gazette on 13 - 06 - 2022

A delegation from the Digital Cooperation Organization (DCO) concluded the organization's inaugural visit to Rwanda by announcing the DCO Global Roundtable Series, an initiative that will bring together global digital economy leaders to develop an action plan for digital prosperity for all.
During her participation at the World Telecommunications Development Conference, DCO Secretary-General Deemah AlYahya announced the DCO's pledge to hold the DCO Global Roundtable Series across five continents, with the first edition of the series commencing on the African continent in Kigali. The event included more than thirty-five government, international organization and private sector leaders, discussing challenges to emerging market growth, and best-practice collaboration between governments, the private sector and civil society.
The inaugural roundtable began with a discussion between Rwanda's Minister of ICT Paula Ingabire, who hosted the DCO delegation, and the Secretary-General.
AlYahya commenced the inaugural roundtable event by stating: "Talking about digital economy issues is no longer something new. We must develop action plans and a roadmap to create an impact for people, and this is indeed what the DCO is doing. We are bringing together people who share the same responsibility, to translate their vision into on-the-ground change that advances the development of the digital economy of their countries."
On her part, the Rwandan minister commented: "I am delighted to welcome the DCO to Kigali this week, and to share with them our pioneering achievements in the digital economy and ICT sector more generally. Since joining the DCO six months ago, Rwanda has played a pivotal role in the organization and we look forward to our continued membership of the wider DCO ecosystem as we shape a future in which all members of society can harness the power of the digital economy."
Along the sidelines of WTDC, the DCO also met with Minister of Communications in Ghana Usula Owusu, where AlYahya and Owusu discussed Ghana's inspiring perspective on digital prosperity for all.
AlYahya also met with the Minister of Communications and Digital Technologies of South Africa, Khumbudzo Ntshaveheni, where they discussed their mutual efforts in enabling digital prosperity for all.
While in Rwanda, the DCO also met with Rwanda's Minister of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation Vincent Biruta, in addition to hosting entrepreneurs across the Rwandan ecosystem at Norrsken House. The DCO further met with the Bank of Kigali, kLab Rwanda, and Rwanda's Information Society Authority.
AlYahya delivered an address to the Carnegie Mellon University Africa, the African Leadership University and the African Institute for Mathematical Sciences.
She signed a Memorandum of Understanding with SmartAfrica, the alliance representing more than 30 African countries on their journey towards digital socioeconomic development and which is chaired by President of Rwanda Paul Kagame.
The agreement reaffirms the two organization's shared commitment to promoting digital prosperity in their respective member states.
The DCO is a global multilateral organization founded in November 2020 that aims to enable digital prosperity for all by accelerating the inclusive growth of the digital economy. The DCO brings together the Ministries of Communications and IT of 10 nations – Bahrain, Djibouti, Kuwait, Morocco, Nigeria, Oman, Pakistan, Jordan, Rwanda and Saudi Arabia – that collectively represent nearly $2 trillion in GDP and a market of nearly 600 billion people, more than 70% of whom are under the age of 35.
The DCO is focused on empowering youth, women and entrepreneurs, leveraging the accelerative power of the digital economy and leapfrogging with innovation to drive economic growth and increase social prosperity. — SPA
