The recommendation comes on the back of government’s efforts in utilizing information and communication technologies for socio-economic advancement.

Addressing members of the Computer Society of Zimbabwe on the resolutions made during the just ended African Union Information and Communication Technologies held in Addis Ababa Information Communication Technologies Minister Mr. Nelson Chamisa said it is imperative for local players in the sector to harmonize infrastructure expansion programmes.

Government recently proposed the private public partnerships in different areas of the economy include ICT with the aim of improving service delivery and ensuring that ICT accessories and services are affordable.

The scrapping off of duty on ICT capital goods has brought hope of recovery and has enabled players in the sector to embark on expansion drives aimed at improving services.
