Namibian Executive Director in the Ministry of Information and Communication Technology Audrin Mathe on Wednesday expressed enthusiasm and outlined the significance of the nation’s forthcoming digital trajectory.

He highlighted this while addressing attendees at the National Digital Strategy Workshop held in Windhoek, the capital of Namibia.

The National Digital Strategy and its Implementation Action Plan are aimed at achieving the country’s digital aspirations through a clear plan with specific objectives, including assessing digital readiness, crafting a digital vision, targeting high-impact areas, action plan development, and a public awareness drive.

The benefits of digitalization will extend across the nation in the next five years, bridging the digital divide, promoting digital literacy, providing access to citizen-centric digital public services, and creating greater economic opportunities for all Namibians.

“In crafting a focused vision for our digital future, we are paving the way to harness digitalization for prosperity,” Mathe said, highlighting the pivotal juncture at which Namibia finds itself in its digital transformation journey.

As explained by Mathe, the essence of the National Digital Strategy revolves around a vision and mission aimed at propelling Namibia into a digitally literate, innovative, and inclusive society.

This strategic roadmap carefully identifies key pillars crucial for maximizing impact and facilitating comprehensive digital development across diverse sectors and landscapes within Namibia, he noted.

Acknowledging the importance of collaborative efforts, Mathe underscored the Namibian government’s commitment to achieving a digital future while expressing gratitude for the support received from partners.

“This validation workshop solicits your voice, expertise, and commitment to a digital government. Your insights will ensure that our vision is anchored in reality and that our ambitions are achievable,” he emphasized, adding that the active involvement and collective action of all Namibians will breathe life into the strategy.
