(Ecofin Agency) - Orange Telecom wants to boost its investments in the Central African Republic and requested an appropriate fiscal framework. This was discussed by Alioune Diagne, Orange director for the Middle-East and Africa, and Faustin Archange Touadéra, the country’s president in Bangui on January 31, 2019. During their discussions, they also talked about a partnership between the telecom firm and the government for digital development.
Currently, Orange is the leader of the Central African market that it shares with Telecel, Moov and Azur. Orange, which has been offering 3G+ technology since 2017 sees the mentioned partnership as an opportunity to further contribute to a strong development of the tech sector in the country.
Central Africa, currently experiencing a political crisis, has an internet penetration rate below 30% and wants to become a preferred partner to bridge the digital gap and achieve continuous growth.
