Yesterday in Addis Ababa, Foreign Minister Sven Mikser and the Commissioner for Infrastructure and Energy at the African Union Commission, Dr Amani Abou-Zeid, discussed the implementation of a Memorandum of Understanding on IT cooperation between Estonia and the African Union.
Mikser said that Estonia has recommended to develop a training module in e-governance at the Commission of the African Union, where decision makers from African countries could share best practices in e-governance and the opportunities offered by it.
“We hope that the corresponding offer will be adopted into the post-summit action plan of the African Union and the European Union," Mikser said.
Commissioner Abou Zeid also made a proposal for bilateral cooperation at the Smart Africa Summit of African IT leaders, whereas Mikser invited representatives of the African Union to attend an e-governance conference taking place in Tallinn in May.
