Come and see us at stand G01

24-26 April, Abuja International Conference Centre – Abuja, Nigeria

Brussels, 18 April 2018 - Zetes will be present in its capacity as a Platinum sponsor at the fourth annual ID4Africa conference: the meeting of the movement of the same name that campaigns to achieve ID-for-all on the African continent. This will be held from 24 to 26 April 2018 in Abuja, Nigeria.

Zetes' main messages will focus on the population register. A population register is truly the cornerstone of any efficient identification programme, and its implementation can help to improve administrative management and achieve economies of scale, and enable citizens to assert their rights and gain access to the services they need.

On the occasion of ID4Africa, Zetes is publishing a White Paper, "At the centre of the population register: issues, analysis, and approach", which gives some guidance on how to initiate projects whose scale can sometimes be daunting for governments or can spur them to push back deadlines.

The population register will also be the topic of the sessions Zetes is participating in:

24 April, 4:50-5:05 PM
Jérôme Coulon / Regional Director, ECOWAS/CEMAC, Zetes
Population Register: The Necessary First Step

25 April, 2:50-3:10 PM
InF8: Improving Government Efficiency
Dr. Extase Akpotsui / Solution Architect, Zetes
Improving Governance using the Population Register as Authentic Source

Ronny Depoortere, Senior VP of the People ID Division of Zetes, says: "Zetes has been participating in the ID4Africa conferences since they began, and is a staunch supporter of this movement. To deal with the major issues involved in identifying Africa's populations, all the stakeholders, starting with the governments, need this type of platform where they can discuss the issues and share information about best practices. The previous meetings were a big success, and we feel confident about the initiative's continued growth potential. "
