African Peering & Interconnection Forum
Rogers Capital was proud to be the local host of this year’s AfPIF forum. Celebrating its 10-year anniversary the event was originally conceived to address the fact that most of Africa’s Internet traffic is sourced or exchanged outside the continent. AfPIF has consistently advanced the Internet infrastructure in Africa by addressing both opportunities and challenges. It is clear that the future is bright with 367 participants, representing 59 countries: 202 from Africa, 36 from Europe, 16 from America, and 13 from Asia in attendance this year.
Moving into the upper-middle income category status was a remarkable feat for Mauritius given the starting point we were at during Independence. Moving forward the next move is to attain high-income status. This is easier said than done and many countries fall into the middle-income trap. Learn more about Mauritius and what should be done to continue achieving development progress.
