[ACCI-CAVIE] On May 19, 2022, Mustapha MELOUI, President of the Moroccan Observatory of Digital Sovereignty (OMSN) and Guy GWETH, President of the African Centre for Competitive Intelligence (ACCI) have signed a strategic partnership to pool their efforts to better meet the continent’s digital competitiveness needs.
The Moroccan Observatory of Digital Sovereignty (OMSN) is a think tank created at the initiative of several experts, academics and researchers specialized in the digital world. This organization is the first Moroccan observatory dedicated to digital sovereignty and the various issues related to the digital transformation of the kingdom. It clearly emanates from the desire to put an end to Morocco’s dependence on American and Chinese technological leaders. These actors are conducting research to popularize the theme of digital sovereignty and explain its issues and its strategic scope for Morocco, while analyzing and monitoring digital trends at the national and international levels.
ACCI is the reference body in Africa in terms of monitoring, due diligence, influence, holistic risk management, training and setting up dedicated mechanisms, for the benefit of public and private actors. Through 24/7/7 monitoring of 12 key sectors of the African economy, ACCI studies, alerts and advises the public authorities, private companies, associations, the media and leading schools that trust it. Among its references are the Presidency of the Republic of Côte d’Ivoire, the Presidency of the Republic of Togo, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Tunisia, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Benin, the Ministry of Development Planning and Cooperation of Togo, the Chamber of Commerce of Burkina Faso, the Chamber of Commerce and Industry of Togo, the Superior Control of the State of Cameroon, Togo Invest, Togocel, Chanas Assurances, Cameroon land bank, Congo national oil company, Société Anonyme des Brasseries of Cameroon, Axys, Trimetys, BICEC, Afriland First Bank, Mauritius Commercial Bank, etc.
As digital sovereignty is part of the defensive axis of strategic intelligence, it is logical that the OMSN and ACCI have teamed up for a better sanctuarization of African informational heritage.
