The First Tanzania ICT Summit 2013, a two day event, will be held the week beginning 18th November 2013 at a central location in Dar Es Salaam (venue and dates will be confirmed shortly). The First Tanzania ICT Summit 2013 will bring together leaders from government, industry and academia to discuss the future ICT skills and how Tanzania can prepare itself. It is widely accepted worldwide that the need for personnel with the required ICT skills is going to increase significantly in the next few years.

The ICT skills shortage situation is compounded further by the fact that higher learning institutions are not producing sufficient numbers of graduates with the right levels of technical skills to improve productivity, economic growth and innovation.
