    Egypt Partakes in Seventh AfIGF2018

    Date published: 4 November 2018

    Egypt, represented by the National Telecom Regulatory Authority (NTRA), will participate in the Seventh Meeting of the African Internet Governance Forum (AfIGF2018) held on November 4-6, in Khartoum, Sudan. AfIGF is usually held at least one month prior to the global IGF. AfIGF aims to be a platform for an inclusive multilateral, multi-stakeholder and multilingual discussion on issues pertinent to the Internet in Africa in general and Internet Governance issues in particular.

    The Forum also aims to strengthen the multi-stakeholder dialogue model for Internet Governance in Africa through regional and national forums and ensure a multi-stakeholder representation of all parts of the continent. This is in addition to facilitating national and regional exchanges and interactions between countries and regions in the continent, facilitating the participation of African stakeholders in AfIGF and other appropriate regional and national Internet Governance Forums and promoting access to information and knowledge. Africaís contribution to the World Summit on the Information Society (WSIS) process has led to the formation of the African Internet Governance Forum (AfIGF) in September 2011. 

    The Internet Governance Forum (IGF) is a platform for multi-stakeholder policy dialogue on prevailing and emerging issues on Internet governance ecosystem. The IGF mandate was extended for ten years by the United Nations General Assembly on 16 December 2015. IGF aims at fostering the sustainability, robustness, security, stability and the development of the Internet, thus facilitating content development and access to information and knowledge.
