The SEI group must be complimented for its effort in helping to build
awareness on Y2K isssues in Africa. Last week April 20-24, I attended a CTO
(Commonwealth Telecommunications Organisation) sponsored event on Y2K and
Telecommunications, The five day seminar was attended by 50 different
countries. Africa was very well represented. I am sure that these telecomms
experts will spread the message when they returned to their homelands.
Presentations were made by BT (the Principal) Cable and Wireless, IBM,
Unilever, Action 2000 (British Government). Participants left the seminar
well aware of the issues and with the skills to prepare a project plan to
tackle all the major issues.
