“This govtech would not have come at a better time as we involve the spirit of OR Tambo and called on the current generation to stand in attention to serve selflessly ethically and with activism informed by the love of our country, history and future challenges. This gov tech conference provides a thought leadership platform for the entire ITC sector in government to reflect on the amount of work covered, but also to focus on new future challenges. We invite you all to start preparations without delay for success of the global event.”
