Dear all

The 3^rd Global Knowledge Conference brings together

"visionaries, innovators, practitioners and policy makers, all geared to 
sharing knowledge and building partnerships on a platform created by and 
for stakeholders from every sector - private companies, governments, 
international institutions and civil society groups" 

The GK3 sessions will address the convergence of emerging people, 
markets and technologies and will  provide a space for debate, 
showcasing of innovative concrete solutions and knowledge sharing; 
discussion on latest lessons, effective methods and approaches.

The theme «Emerging People, Emerging Markets, and Emerging Technologies» 
relates well to  what Kenya is currently experiencing. We are considered 
a pioneer in many ways from our private sector activity, MSP ICT policy 
processes, liberalisation of the ICT sector, etc. Read article from 
Balancing act titled “Africa’s competition laboratory Kenya is the one 
to watch”  .

Some of us will attend and share some of these experiences...
