3 December 2010
A conference on information and communication technologies was organised last Wednesday in Tunis, in collaboration with the World Bank.
Mohamed Ammar, minister of Communication Technologies, used this occasion to recall the efforts of the Tunisian government in the domain of ITC, reports the newspaper Kapitalis.
He mentioned several figures, including the increase in the number of subscribers to mobile telephony to 11 million in September 2010 and the rise in the Internet connection speed, which has reached 47.5 Gb/second.
He also took stock of the improvements in the domain of infrastructures, with the project to extend the technopole of El Ghazala, the development of technology parks and the connection of industrial estates to high-speed Internet.
This conference is part of the African ITC week, which is currently underway in member countries of the African Union.
Its aim is to promote ITC in Africa and to raise awareness among the population of their crucial role in socioeconomic development.
