Tech Global has been actively expanding its presence in Africa since the end of 2019. During this time it has signed a contract with a large customer from South Africa for the supply of UAVs; established a working group with the Ministry of Communications of the Republic of the Congo; developed a plan to digitalise Senegal's post with the participation of Russian companies.
"Many African B2B and B2G customers are interested in Russian technologies, thanks to both available functionality and price-quality ratio. Tech Global´s role in these conditions is to eliminate any distance between the customer and the contractor and to ensure Russian companies' participation in digitalising Africa. We are responsible for supporting projects at the state level, closing contracts and financing transactions," said George Mikaberidze, Tech Global General Director.
