Siemens joins German government’s IT alliance
Siemens has committed to joining the German development ministry’s IT alliance. The alliance comprises leading German and European businesses, associations, and research institutes, and aims to support young entrepreneurs and businesses from developing countries to modernize their domestic economies and create innovative solutions for development issues. Since January 2017, it has supported digital start-ups in Western and Eastern Africa.
The IT alliance was created through the Marshall Plan with Africa, which provides a framework for increased private investments and job opportunities in African countries.
