Good Morning,

ICT Authority Telposta Towers 12 Floor, Kenyatta Ave PO Box 27150 - 00100 Nairobi Kenya Tel:www.icta.go.ke info@ict.go.ke Good Morning, Let me start by welcoming you to the Connected East Africa Summit 2015 with the theme “The strength is in our Network’. It’s been a journey, since we started off in 2009 with only a handful of public sector players in the then Connected Government summit. We have grown tremendously over the years, and now on our 7 year, I look back with pride at how much we have achieved through a network of players. Projects such as the Kenya Open Data Initiative, Huduma citizen’s portal , Shared Services approaches and the development of a national Information Security Policy were informed or refined from discussions and panels held at Connected Kenya. During last year’s Summit, two significant actions took place ; Firstly, Connected Kenya morphed into Connected East Africa ICT conference which has culminated into this inaugural the event today. Secondly, the National ICT Master Plan was unveiled. The Plan enhances our smart Africa agenda by helping to develop a dynamic and robust ICT sector that will enhance socio economic growth for us by driving ICT adoption and usage. I can report that we will give a status report at this meeting, as we had promised in the last Summit. This year the key items that we want to pay attention to include; 1) To address the gaps in ICT integration and shared infrastructure among the East African Member states 2) To speed-up harmonization of ICT regulation across the region 3) To build support on ongoing ICT integrated infrastructure projects across the East African region. 4) To provide platform for meaningful networking among us It’s time we looked at how we ensure that our infrastructure is protected by having the right conversations right at the design stage. As the ICT Authority, important deliberations. we are glad to present this platform for such The ICT Authority is a State Corporation under the Kenya State Corporations Act 446 Page 2 of 1 " id="pdf-obj-1-14" src="pdf-obj-1-14.jpg">
