Digital Transformation Partnership:  India’s Union Cabinet, led by Prime Minister Narendra Modi, has approved the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) between the Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology of India and the Ministry of Information and Communications of Sierra Leone. The MoU aims to promote cooperation and drive digital transformation between the two countries.

The primary objective of the MoU is to facilitate the exchange of successful digital solutions implemented at a large scale. Sierra Leone hopes to leverage India’s expertise in digital transformation, particularly through its pioneering initiative called “INDIA STACK.” The collaboration also aims to create employment opportunities in the IT sector.

The agreement covers both Government-to-Government (G2G) and Business-to-Business (B2B) cooperation in the field of Digital Public Infrastructure (DPI). The expenses for the activities outlined in the MoU will be covered by the regular operating budgets of the respective administrations.

India’s Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology (MeitY) has been actively engaging with various countries and multilateral agencies to promote cooperation in the information and communication technology (ICT) domain. This aligns with India’s broader vision of digital empowerment, as seen in initiatives like Digital India and Atmanirbhar Bharat.

The MoU will be valid for a period of 3 years, during which both countries will work closely together to achieve their digital transformation goals.
