W.TEC Participates in Consultative Working Group on the Implementation of Inclusive Digital Transformation in Lagos

In July, W.TEC was valued stakeholder at the digital economy plan and strategy consultative working group (CWG). This is a series of workshops and technical sessions aimed at co-creating a state-inclusive digital economy strategy and other related frameworks and action plans for the adoption and implementation of digital economy interventions in Lagos State, Nigeria. Our participation alongside other invited stakeholders involve in co-creating this strategy framework/action plan will help advance the digital transformation efforts of the Lagos State government.

The state-level Inclusive Digital Transformation implementation project is an extension of the Digital Access Programme (DAP) aimed at providing technical assistance to each state in planning, developing and implementing state-specific inclusive digital economy interventions for growth and development in line with the National Digital Economy Policy and Strategy (NDEPS) of the Federal Government. The project is supported by the UK Foreign, Commonwealth, and Development Office (FCDO)

W.TEC’s representative at the Consultative Working Group is Moses Oghene, W.TEC’s Tech Assistant. He was at the first workshop slated July 13 – 14 at the LCCI Conference and Exhibition Centre Ikeja.

At the event, after introductions, there was a break out session, his group was tasked to come up with Developmental Regulations and Policies that will help drive the states’ digital economy. It was his pleasure to present to the general gathering after the break out session.

His presentation centred on the group’s proposed strategies and initiatives to identify enablers that will help make the implementation of the strategy successful within the proposed implementation timeline.

Our participation in the Consultative Working Group gives W.TEC the opportunity as a stake holder to contribute to strategiesa and policies which affect our work and targeted beneficiaries towards their socio economic development through efficient government policy.

Furthermore Moses oghene will be continue to attend further workshops of the series and we shall surely update you on progress of the Consultative Working Group.
