EIB and Chad to co-operate on digital transformation

The European Investment Bank (EIB) has announced its readiness to co-operate with Chad in order to accelerate the country’s digital transformation. The EIB is expected to share expertise in three areas; provision of high-speed Internet, better telecommunication services, and better delivery of Internet products and services in rural and remote areas. The initiative is expected to improve Chad’s economic and social capacities, in particular for those that may be impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic and advance its sustainable development objectives.
