The main objective of the 8th Africa Think Tank Summit was to explore policy and implementation mo¬dalities that are essential to leveraging digitalization to build African economies back better after the COVID-19 pandemic. Think tanks and other stakeholders, including policymakers and development prac¬titioners, shared ideas and experiences and devised implementable recommendations on what works and what needs to change in Africa’s approach to digitalization. Delegates particularly discussed what ca¬pacities are required to accelerate the implementation of Africa’s Digital Transformation Strategy (2020- 2030) developed by the African Union and how it translates into the implementation of sound digital transformation policies and actions at regional and country levels.
