With the onset of the Fourth Industrial Revolution, the Telecommunication & ICT Sector continues to grow into one of the country’s leading sources of employment and contributors to the GDP. South Africa has one of the largest information and communications technology (ICT) markets in Africa, although the country has consistently imported more ICT products than it has exported.
The Chamber supports local area and sector development by providing the following:
1. Enterprise development - increasing awareness of opportunities for learning, development and links to expertise.
2. Networking events - enabling members to connect with new customers, suppliers, experts and decision-makers.
3. Support sector associations to strengthen their cluster facilitation capabilities.
4. Strengthening of dialogue with the public sector - towards more effective public investment, smarter service delivery, procurement efficacy and to stop doing what the private sector can do with greater efficacy.
According to Statistics South Africa, South Africa’s largest ICT export – 60,5% of all ICT exports – was broadcasting, telecommunications and information supply services. Think of South Africa’s expansion into the African continent with cellphone services and pay television.
In South Africa, just over two-thirds of activity in this field relates to telecommunications services that include, among other things, private broadcasting and cellphone services. The remaining third consists of computer services (e.g. data processing and software development), manufacturing of ICT equipment (such as electronic components and devices), and activities related to the development of content and media.
We welcome you to engage with us to improve the Telecommunication & ICT sector.
