About the session

This session will be a contribution to the operationalization of the Douala Consensus adopted at the 33rd session of the ICE (Cameroun, September 2017), and the 34th session of the ICE (September 2018, N'Djamena, Chad) on the financing of industrialization in Central Africa.


The main objective of the thirty-fifth session of the ICE is to consider ways and means to better mainstream the digital economy into the economic diversification strategies of the sub-region to accelerate its structural transformation, and to pool the efforts of all Central African countries in terms of digital technology, to set up an integrated digital ecosystem.
