15 May 2014, 14:07

Lagos - Airtel Nigeria appealed to government to create an enabling environment for the growth and development of the local mobile sector.

Chief Commercial Officer of the company, Maurice Newa, said the growth of the sector also depended on encouraging local content and giving support to start-up mobile businesses.

This is among some issues he explored at the ongoing Mobile West Africa Conference taking place in Lagos.

He was part of a discussion panel that also included executives from the Open Media Group and Nigeria Communications Commission among others.

Other participants examined critical issues in the mobile sector, including ways through which stakeholders can create enabling environment for the mobile technology.

Other mobile experts from different organizations as well as CEOs of mobile platform across Nigeria and Africa also participated in various interactive segments of the conference.

The Mobile West Africa Conference will run until Friday at the Sheraton Hotel.

It features exhibitions, roundtable discussions and networking opportunities for participants.

Tomi Ahonen, who is considered one of the world's most influential experts in the global mobile sector, is expected to share his wealth of experience on Friday.
