The Bamako Digital Complex Support Project is aimed the construction and operationalization of a Digital Complex that will be the development pole for Information and Communications Technology (ICT) skills training in Mali. The project falls within the context of the Growth and Poverty Reduction Strategy Paper (GPRSP) 2007-2011 and RBCSP 2008-2011 (“improving private sector environment”). At the end of the project, Mali should have an ICT centre of excellence with a tertiary training school, facilities for research, innovation and incubation as well as a business centre. This should make it possible to: (i) train high-level ICT skills; (ii) generate projects around ICT, and (iii) propose a favorable development framework for existing or aspiring companies in the ICT sector. The Bank’s support to the Bamako Digital Complex also marks its contribution towards implementing the international community’s recommendations during the 2007 Kigali Connect Africa Summit.
The objective of the project is to increase the use of Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) to improve productivity and competitiveness.
The Bamako Digital Complex resulting from the project is expected to serve all qualifying Malians and nationals of the countries of the subregion should be eligible for admission.
