In an era where digital technology is rapidly gaining global traction, the Chadian government is intensifying its endeavors to catch up in the sector. Numerous initiatives are in progress, and results are already perceptible.

Chad and Morocco will extend their bilateral cooperation in the field of information and communication technologies (ICT). To this end, a technical assistance memorandum of understanding has been signed between Chad's ICT development agency ADETIC, and Morocco’s telecom regulator ANRT. 

The collaboration includes training for ADETIC engineers and exchanges of experience between the two agencies. The aim is to help Chad adapt and implement the Moroccan ICT model in favor of digital acceleration in the country, with a view to a prosperous digital economy.

The collaboration between the two regulatory agencies overseeing the telecommunications sector is a crucial component of the Chadian government's strategy to bridge the gap in the digital domain. This partnership materialized following a three-day mission by the ADETIC delegation to Morocco, during which they visited the host country’s digital development agency ADD and the ARNT.

"Most of the discussions focused on the Moroccan model for the digital transformation of public administration, the legal and regulatory framework, the management of ICT technical infrastructures, as well as domain name management and the provision of universal services," ADETIC wrote on Facebook.  

This new partnership allows ADETIC to leverage the extensive expertise of ARNT, which boasts 25 years of experience in telecommunications sector regulation, approval of telecommunications equipment, administration of ".ma" domain names, and the management of electronic certification, among other areas.
