As he looks to the future Nash had this to say regarding the telecommunications industry:
“I truly believe the future of telecommunications in Africa is so bright as we still hold the largest potential ever which makes it exciting and very challenging as Africa holds about ±23 percent connectivity. So, when President Cyril Ramaphosa mentioned the fourth industrial revolution (4IR) in his State of the Nation (SONA) in 2019, I was elated as that certainly will drive massive development and changes in our society through a convergence of the physical, digital, and biological spheres via artificial intelligence (AI), automation, biotechnology, nanotechnology, and other communications technologies. The pandemic has also magnified such disparity between ‘the haves and the have-nots’ and why we should thrive to ensure that we implement the vision for us to participate in this fourth industrial revolution (4IR).”
