The association is made up of incumbent operators of Angola, Chad, Gabon, Democratic Republic of Congo, Republic of Congo, Burundi and the Central Africa Republic.
“We are all incumbent operators and it was important that we create a platform where we can discuss our challenges and see how we can exchange on best practices and take our different structures to the level at which they are supposed to belong,” the General Manager of CAMTEL, Judith Yah Sunday Achidi said.
Her election comes at the end of a two-day general assembly of the Association of telecommunications operators of the central Africa sub region.
Members discussed on the best strategies to boost telecommunications operations in the sub region.
“Africa is moving in towards digital transformation really fast and this is a very good move setting up this association to group telecomm operators to establish rules of this organisation, to protect the territories as well as advance the growth and sustain this digital transformation into the whole region,” Khalid Al Hadj, Director of SudaTchad said.
Rounding off discussions in Yaounde on Thursday, members hoped the association will meet the aspirations of the population by reducing prices of telecommunications products, drive many other industries like education, medicine..etc.
