The Africa Communications Week is an annual event aimed at enhancing communication in Africa. The 2023 edition of the event will be hosted by the Government Communication and Information System (GCIS) in South Africa, with participation from 20 countries in the continent.
Exploring Innovative Ways to Accelerate Communication in Africa
During the May 2023 event, communication professionals and thought leaders will converge to discuss and explore innovative ways to accelerate communication in Africa. The theme of the event is “Agenda 2063, The Africa We Want,” which will focus on the impact of current narratives in Africa and how they can be transformed through effective communication.
