India’s initiatives spanning the Jan Dhan-Aadhaar-Mobile (JAM) trinity should be applied to Africa so that a high level of digital connectivity can quickly spread across the continent, Bharti Airtel Chairman Sunil Bharti Mittal said on Tuesday.

Mittal is a key member of the B20, the official G20 dialogue forum with the global business community.

Speaking at the CII Partnership Summit 2023, Mittal said the integration of the African economy had been chosen by India as one of the legacies it wanted to leave behind as part of its G20 presidency.
