WHY WE ARE A MEMBER OF MAKE-IT
As IBM, we are eager to bring our technological, research, and consulting assets to the table in order to jointly identify and implement new approaches and activities in economic cooperation and development. We expect that exchanging knowledge, ideas and assets in the Make-IT Alliance will generate significant benefits for all parties involved, most importantly the developing countries and its tech industry. We are certain that we can learn from the profound expertise of the Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and the GIZ in economic aid and developmental affairs to inform and further develop our activities in Africa and other regions.
