Digital Forum

Chairperson:                  Anthony Modena (Managing Director – Modena Design Centres)

Launched in October 2015, the Amcham Digital Forum was formed as a response to member demand to become more involved in ICT issues in South Africa, to compile policy submissions on ICT legislation and to network with professional and government organisations within the ICT and digital landscape. The Forum places specific focus on the digital economy and the 4th Industrial Revolution.

Objectives:

  1. To compile policy submissions on ICT legislation.
  2. To provide a networking platform.
  3. To share information – including the impact SA legislation has on U.S. companies.
  4. To interface with government agencies to address common issues.
