UNIVERSITY OF PENNSYLVANIA - AFRICAN STUDIES CENTER
Statement made at the closing session of the Addis Ababa Conference on Telematics for Development in Africa.
Addis Ababa, April 7, 1995
It is with great pleasure that we have seen the importance of African telematics raised during this meeting. We hope that the result of the symposium will be to raise the profile of Africa in global communications and to get more of Africa online.
This statement is signed by service providers who speak on behalf of their 10,000 electronic mail users in sub- Saharan Africa.
o Donors and member states should recognize the key contribution of existing service providers and it is strongly advised that they consult and support these systems in the implementation of new initiatives.
o These functioning local initiatives should be recognized both as independent systems as well as examples of successful donor projects.
o All new initiatives should take in a sub-regional perspective.
o New initiatives should be made with a view to providing a transitional path between existing levels of service such as dial-up store and forward systems to full IP connectivity.
