On 23 May, the French President Emmanuel Macron hosted the Tech for Good summit in Paris, aimed at fostering a wider discussion on the role of technology in improving education, labour and diversity.

Mo Ibrahim joined the summit together with 50 CEOs from the tech industry, including Facebook Chief Executive Mark Zuckerberg, IBM’s Virginia Rometty, Brian Krzanich from Intel and Microsoft's Satya Nadella.

This summit was also attended by H.E. Paul Kagame, President of Rwanda, who attended the 2018 Ibrahim Governance Weekend last month (watch his interview with Mo here).

This summit comes in light of the recent adoption of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) regulations, highlighting the mutual efforts of governments and tech companies to hold open discussions on the challenges and opportunity in the tech world.
