Pandor Challenges ICT Industry to Engage with Government

Science and technology minister Naledi Pandor yesterday challenged the ICT industry to engage more with government around the ‘Fourth Industrial Revolution' and the opportunities it presents for SA.

Delivering the keynote at the Cisco Connect South Africa conference in Sun City, Pandor said government had been intrigued by the concept of the Fourth Industrial Revolution – introduced in January 2016 by the WEF's Klaus Schwab – and deliberations were happening in Cabinet to ensure the country was not left behind.

The minister stressed the opportunities that technology and innovation offered to the country on both the economic and social levels, including agriculture, education, communication, commerce and healthcare.

She highlighted how, even though most people in the country had access to basic healthcare, people were spending far too much time accessing these services.
