Isabel Dos Santos Has A Strong Belief That Energy Is The Key To Future Telecommunications Expansion Across Africa

Isabel dos Santos, the Angolan businesswoman and investment expert known for her significant accomplishments in the telecommunications market within the country, has recently presented evidence for the need to increase investment commitments to the energy infrastructure of Africa. She presented this evidence at a major business conference known as AfricaCom. It was held this November 2019 in South Africa and featured over 400 of the top leader of commerce in sectors such as the telecommunications market, the tech sector, and media. As a featured speaker at AfricaCom, Isabel dos Santos provided some points of insight into the growing need to bring 5G network technology to the continent. She points out that this technology will be instrumental in helping to grow the economy. This is particularly true for growing sectors such as e-commerce and the realm of digital technology.

According to Isabel dos Santos, the private sector needs to rally behind this cause. To do so, it is going to take more than simply committing to bringing 5G technology to the continent. It is also going to take a commitment to further build up the existing energy infrastructure. For this, there is going to be a need for major investment commitments from the private sector of business. Isabel dos Santos is well-versed in what it takes to improve infrastructure. She has spent much of the last decade tirelessly working toward the improvement of telecommunications infrastructure in Angola through her Unitel company.

This process has been beneficial to the country’s economy as it has generated more than fifty-thousand jobs that have been vital to tackling the employment numbers in Angola. This commitment to building telecommunications infrastructure has been engaged in by many entrepreneurs across the continent and Isabel wants to see a similar type of commitment on the topic of energy investment. This is what she asserts is going to be necessary to bring 5G technology to the continent’s businesses and citizens. Isabel dos Santos has proudly used her standing as the woman with the largest fortune in Africa to help others. She is dedicated to many important philanthropic causes aimed at stimulating the economy and encouraging more women to engage in business.
