The CDITP (Centre for the Development of Information and Telecommunications Policy) was an independent non-profit policy research and training organisation (now called the Link Centre).
Before the CDITP’s establishment, the telecommunications (including broadcasting) sector was characterised by a scarcity of information. Since it’s establishment in 1991, by bringing prominent international speakers and leaders to South Africa, the CDITP provided a platform for independent research and public debate on issues concerning the sector. In particular, it initialised public discussions on the future of telecommunications in post apartheid South Africa. It communicated the importance of the sector to the future of the country in terms of it’s economy and democracy.
