The Smart Africa Alliance and the Assembly of Central African Telecommunications Regulators (ARTAC) signed a memorandum of understanding to develop communication in Africa. The agreement was initiated by Lacina Koné, executive director of Smart Africa, and Louis-Marc Sakala, president of ARTAC. The signing took place in Kigali, Rwanda.

This partnership will allow for joint actions at the continental, regional and national level. ARTAC member states will benefit from the most significant outcomes of the numerous projects that Smart Africa is implementing. On the other hand, Smart Africa will benefit from ARTAC’s relationships with all regulators to align their goals with his.

Since its creation, the Smart Africa Alliance has set itself several goals, including ending roaming in Africa, reducing the cost of internet access and improving internet advertising across the continent. With ARTAC's support, the alliance seeks to advance these various projects throughout Central Africa.
