“The topics to be discussed are in line with our drive towards the universal access to internet that is why recently we launched initiative like 4G and Wi-Fi to ensure that our customers access reliable and easy internet as we all know that internet is important to our customers and the general public,” he said.

Receiving the donation, ICTAM President Wisely Phiri thanked TNM for the support towards the hosting of the ICT Development conference.

“As an association we are very humbled with this contribution from TNM this is not a small amount and it will go a long way to help us to host this ICT Development conference. We would like to appreciate the support that TNM has given to us,” said Phiri.

Phiri said the conference is aimed at bringing together all stakeholders in the ICT industry and government to discuss ICT for development in Malawi.

“The meeting is expected to influence policy makers to make informed and better policies for achieving universal internet access in the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGS),” he said.
