Parminder Jeet Singh from IT for Change will be a keynote speaker at this meeting.  The key questions that Parminder will respond to at this session will include:

  • As a global community, we need to decide on how data flows should be handled. Some have called data the ‘new oil’. Should it be given away freely? What are the different paradigms countries have implemented regarding data flows? Should and if so, how can developing countries gain value from their citizens’ data?
  • What if the status quo continues? Who gains, loses, what are the implications for developing countries’ economies?
  • What are the critical digital industrialisation policies and strategies governments should start thinking about?
