By Lincoln G. Peters

The Internet Society Liberia Chapter (ISOC) in collaboration with government institutions, will on Wednesday, 23 November 2022, host a national stakeholders’ dialogue on the improvement of the digital economy of Liberia.

The dialogue will be held in collaboration with the Ministry of Post and Telecommunications (MOPT), and Liberia Telecommunications Authority (LTA), with funding and sponsorship from the Internet Society Foundation and Internet Society.

Speaking in an exclusive interview with this paper over the weekend in Monrovia, Internet Society Liberia Chapter president Mr. Matthew Roberts said the dialogue is aimed at sharing best practices and building capacity for individuals in a diversity of sectors in Liberia. 

Roberts explained that the unlocking of the digital economy in Liberia through digital transformation is to offer an intensive learning progression or experience covering a wide range of topics on digital transformation in the digital economy. 

“The objective of this dialogue is to inform and create awareness of the use of Internet/ICT in support of the digital economy and society,” he said. 

He said it is intended to share international best practices on digital transformation and to build capacity and skills development in the digital era through digital transformation.

He disclosed that the workshop will consist of both lectures and practical, hands-on activities that enhance the learning experience and participants will have the opportunity to work with others and share ideas.
