The UK is letting a partner, Ordinance Survey, help the Ghanaian government with its digital base map. The UK High Commissioner to Ghana, Iain Walker, said the map would help create a new digitised land registry system.
The digital base map is to help with the clarification of land ownership. This was revealed at the 6th edition of ‘Tech in Ghana’, a two-day event held at the Accra Digital Centre. The event was organised by AB2020 and supported by the Ministry of Communications, the British High Commission and GIZ,
The conference brought together players in Ghana’s technology ecosystem for global knowledge sharing, valuable networking, and showcasing innovations.
The conference themed: “Connecting our Global Network: People, Opportunities and Industries” was attended by both local and international tech companies including Visa, KudiGo, Jumo, BlueSPACE Africa and MTN.
The High Commissioner said: “I am delighted that through the UK-Ghana Business Council, we are able to bring in UK expertise from the Government Digital Service, who are here this week to support a new partnership around the digitalization of government services. Their work in the UK has had a transformative impact on delivery of government services for the British people.”
