Ms. Lillian Barnard Managing Director at Microsoft South Africa;
Mr. David Kramer Deputy Director General at the Gauteng Provincial Government E-governance division
Ladies and Gentlemen;
I am immensely honored to be with you today, as we celebrate a historic moment in this continents trajectory. Microsoft’s decision to invest in Africa through South Africa by building not one but two data centers in Cape Town and Johannesburg is arguably one of the biggest 4IR investments on the continent to date.
