About digital solutions in Africa

Over the past 1-2 years, we have seen an increasing interest in digital solutions within all sectors, in Africa. And we believe Nordic companies can make a significant difference in Africa, due to the way we lead/manage, think innovative and have trust in people. 

Remarkably, digital flows in Africa —which were practically nonexistent just 15 years ago—now exert a larger impact on GDP growth than the centuries-old trade in goods. 

The world is more connected than ever, but the nature of its connections has changed in a fundamental way. The amount of cross-border bandwidth that is used has grown 45 times larger since 2005. It is projected to increase by an additional nine times over the next five years as flows of information, searches, communication, video, transactions, and intracompany traffic continue to surge. In addition to transmitting valuable streams of information and ideas in their own right, data flows enable the movement of goods, services, finance, and people. Virtually every type of cross-border transaction now has a digital component.
