Africas major cities are expected to transform digitally and have high standards inline with their global counterparts following a memorandum of understanding between microsoft and Ecobank signed today.
The MOU will see the modernisation of sectors that will have the most immediate and significant impact for African countries
These sectors will include:
- Bursary disbursements and school fee collections in the education sector
- Market shop and small vendor municipality collections
- vehicle and driving licensing as well as eVisa and ePassport fee collections.
- Implementation of a comprehensive e-skills and a digital literacy programme in the education sector
- Land registration and fee collections in the municipal and hospital services.
The collaboration ensued from increasing pressure on African cities due to urbanisation and the need to provide services that will ensure a healthier and safer environment, delivered in a fair, open and sustainable manner
