Burkina Faso to promote digital inclusion via production of digital devices

In order to improve digital inclusion, Burkina Faso has decided to boost local production of digital devices. A Burkinabe company Horizon Industries SA will cooperate together with a Chinese entity HAIER on the production of low cost digital technologies. The project aligns with Burkina’s industrialisation strategy and, among other things, aims to promote employment in the tech industry but also contribute to the digital transformation of the country.
