Digital: Morocco in force at Vivatech Paris
Saturday, 05 18 2019, Category: Technology, Country: Morocco
The future will be on-line and digital. In a world where more than 80% of travel, hotel and other bookings are made via the internet, and the number of smartphones in Africa is growing exponentially, Morocco needs to position itself. The challenge is to “update”, support the rapid development of artificial intelligence, prepare for a changing world, and create new jobs.
It is in this perspective that the Kingdom participates, since May 15, at the Afrobytes Tech Conference and Salon VivaTechnology of Paris (France). The event that continues until May 18 has a strong Moroccan participation. Appointed by the Digital Development Agency (ADD), the managers of 16 Moroccan startups with high potential made the trip. They sharpen their weapons and extol the intelligence of an emerging sector.
This is the first media release for Sidi Mohammed Drissi Melyani, new director of the ADD. This establishment, under the Ministry of Industry, Commerce and the Digital Economy, is responsible for implementing the State’s digital development strategy and promoting digital tools and developing their use with the administration, businesses and citizens. “Our agency supports the various actors and stakeholders in the digital transformation of our country by adopting a participatory, realistic and integrated approach,” says Melyani.
