ZAMTEL has reaffirmed its commitment to accelerating Zambia’s attainment of the UN Sustainable Development Goals-SDGs through mobile connectivity.
ZAMTEL Chief Executive Officer Sydney Mupeta says mobile operators around the world are working to enable access to essential services such as health and education, create employment opportunities and empower people with tools to reduce poverty and inequality.
Mr Mupeta was speaking on the side-lines of the on-going World Mobile Congress in Barcelona, Spain.
He said the Congress is important as it brings the global telecom industry and other development-oriented organizations together to scale up innovations needed to tackle global issues.
Mr Mupeta said ZAMTEL’s continued investment in network expansion is providing affordable services across the country to a vast proportion of the Zambian population.
