Seifu ON EBS - Interview with Artist Fekreaddis and Rahel Fetu
Technology is changing at an alarming rate. The government should adopt a right policy to use the technology. We shouldn’t solely focus on bringing technology from outside, we should embrace innovation.
Especially the Digital technologies have wide rooms for innovation. We have a large young population, with the right policy we can make Ethiopia the center of innovation. We shouldn’t worry about the rate of technology change; we should worry how much we are approaching to innovation.
If we become innovative as a nation, we will not be engulfed by technology changes, instead we can see opportunities through the changes. Capital: Digital economy refers to an economy that is based on digital computing technologies, can the current infrastructure support this?
Abiyot: The current technology is at a very low stage, but it is improving.
All our current problems are not completely attributed to infrastructure problems, in some cases we do not use existing infrastructure efficiently. Currently the government has made important decisions to overhaul the technology/ the telecom sector in Ethiopia. The sector is opening up for competitions. And I believe this will help the country to have a better infrastructure. Hope the future is better
