In recent times, the Ghana government has not shied away from investing in the digital future of the country.
In 2018, there was the launch of the Mobile Money (MoMo) interoperability service. This made it easy to send mobile money across all networks.
There’s also been the introduction of the Ghana Card, Tax Identification Number (TIN) and more recently plans are underway for a new digital currency, called the E-cedi.

This wave of digital innovation in the country is not likely to go away anytime soon.
The Mayor of Accra, Mohammed Adjei Sowah, stated at a recent event that the Assembly has plans to digitalize certain services within the capital city.
Such services will include marriage registration, billboard advertisement and waste collection.
He also hinted at plans to develop Accra’s ICT hub and engage the citizens in digital skills training and innovations.
As reported by TechNova, Mr Sowah noted that a lot of development has been going into an app for trotros to capitalize on the commercial transport sector and to address the various needs within the sector.
