The Internet Society Liberia Chapter is collaborating with the Liberia Ministry of Post and Telecommunications (MOPT), Liberia Telecommunication Authority (LTA), and other stakeholders to conduct a workshop on the theme “Internet as a tool for economic growth: digital transformation in the digital economy of Liberia.”
Unlocking the digital economy through digital transformation in Liberia. To achieve the main objectives, the program has been designed to enhance the understanding of participants of new technologies and innovation methodologies. It is observed that Liberia’s businesses, institutions, and people use digital technologies for different purposes. However, the ability to use digital technologies as a transformational tool to grow the economy has a slow pace. This would be due to the lack of education in using digital technologies to grow one economy. The three days of the comprehensive workshop will cover everything from core terminology to how digital transformation in the digital economy is important in branding, content creation, e-commerce, e-banking, e-governance, the gig economy, etc. As we all strive to make Liberia an improved digital economy with telecommunications/ICT tools being the vehicle by which socio-economic development is achieved, the importance of the workshop cannot be overemphasized. The training approach will enable participants to grasp all the information presented, even if some of the topics are new to the target participants. They will learn new emerging areas of digital transformation in the digital economy to serve as the foundation for skills development and knowledge for years to come.
