    Ministry of Interior, MCIT Sign Cooperation Protocol

    Date published: 10 July 2018

    The Minister of Interior Mahmoud Tawfik and the Minister of Communications and Information Technology Amr Talaat have witnessed the signing of a cooperation protocol between the Ministry of Interior and the Ministry of Communications and Information Technology (MCIT) to provide modern technology to the service sectors at the Ministry of Interior, aiming to facilitate dealing with People with Disabilities (PwDs) through electronic applications and touchscreen tablets and computers.

    The new application allows the conversion of sign language into written text without the need for a sign language interpreter and helps the blind to interact effectively with it.

    In this context, Tawfik underscored the Ministry's keenness to strengthen cooperation frameworks with all the State’s institutions to develop the security system in line with the requirements of citizens, being one of the most important pillars of the security strategy towards developing and modernizing public services.

    For his part, Talaat hailed the fruitful and constructive cooperation with the Ministry of Interior to provide all facilities for PwDs and develop the services provided to them especially in relation to issuing civil status documents, passports and work permits and adapting technology to integrate PwDs into society, which comes within the framework of the President’s initiative to support and enable PwDs. He ascertained that a concerted effort was subsequently made among ministries to implement the government's program to improve the quality of services provided to citizens.

    The protocol was signed by Assistant Minister of Interior for the Media and Relations Sector Khalid Hamdi— representing the Ministry of Interior— and ICT Minister’s Advisor for Social Responsibility and Services Abeer Shakweer— representing MCIT.
