The convention will culminate into the adoption of the Smart Africa Manifesto, which seeks to enable member states to “become more competitive, agile, open and innovative smart economies.

Also, member states are to provide the most favourable business climates that attract large-scale investments, reward entrepreneurship and enable fast growth and exports, leveraging ICT innovations to transform African nations into smart societies.”

One of the notable speakers at the two-day meeting was Sophia, the world’s first robot citizen.
