Date: 28 September 2015

Time: 09:00 – 15:00

Venue: Diep in die Berg 929 Disselboom Street, Wapadrand, Pretoria



South Africa’s biggest economic challenge is that our economy has not grown fast enough, for long enough. A 9-point plan comprising simultaneous actions in key strategic areas, with a view of igniting economic growth, has been developed by government through its Cluster for Economic Sectors, Employment and Infrastructure.

In this seminar the benefits that South African agriculture can derive from the introduction of ITCs will be explored.

The question that must be answered is how DST, with the support of its ICT ecosystem stakeholders, can contribute towards using ICT technologies and innovation to enable the revitalisation of the agricultural and agro-processing sectors with the aim of driving growth and job creation.
