In turn we support government with issues such as policy and regulation, best practice and minimum standards through an independent voice. Member engagement is encouraged through participation in events and working groups. We offer members an opportunity to network and collaborate and discuss best practice frameworks that is in the best interest of all, solving complex issues through dialogue and policy adoption. Furthermore, we encourage dialogue between government and private sector from a platform that is independent and product agnostic. In addition, our mission is to see broad-based investment in digital skills by all stakeholders, thereby enhancing the lives of all people living on the continent of Africa.

The Digital Council Africa believes that the development and deployment of digital access will enhance the quality of life for citizens in South Africa and Africa as a whole, providing African countries with a digital footprint which will increase their effectiveness and competitiveness within the global marketplace. The council’s charter is to educate Africa governments, policy makers and political leaders on technology and data issues facing the continent. Further, we seek to develop methods as to how digital connectivity and services can be delivered to citizens within the coming years. Through consultation with all major stakeholders and understanding their strategies and concerns, we endeavour to be the voice of the industry and to help create a better future for all involved..
