The rapid growth of Africa’s telecommunications market, especially from a mobile perspective, has had a significant and positive impact on the continent with consumers, businesses and governments alike reaping the benefits of an increasingly connected Africa.

VC & CEO, IHS Group, Robert Grant, Group Head, Project & Structured Finance, FCMB Capital Markets Ltd and Abiodum Adeoye, Managing Director, Contact Solutions Limited.
