He made the announcement to chief executives of the world biggest technology firms at the Technology for Good summit in Paris.
Facebook boss Mark Zuckerberg was among those who spoke at the Technology for Good summit in Paris, where Macron said his country had been too hesitant about supporting the burgeoning start ups from Africa.
Zuckerberg has been pushing others to join in backing African advancement in technology and artificial intelligence.
He’s also spearheading efforts in Europe to have digital companies pay tax at source and contribute to the societies in which they operate.
