    Egypt Partakes in AfIGF 2015

    Date published: 27 August 2015

    Egypt is to participate in the fourth African Internet Governance Forum (AfIGF 2015)—organized  by the African Union Commission (AUC) in cooperation with the United Nations Economic Commission for Africa (UNECA)—scheduled on 6-8 September 2015 at the AUC New Conference Center in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia.

    AfIGF is expected to bring together participants from all over the continent and outside partners to discuss Africa’s collective common position on Internet Governance and share best practices based on the results of national and sub-regional consultations in order to chart the way for the continent’s participation in the next Internet Governance Forum (IGF) to be held in Joao Pessoa, Brazil in November 2015.

    The meeting will focus on a number of goals including realizing the optimal benefit of Internet in development affairs, ensuring online freedom of expression and freedom of information and ideas exchange, securing internet access for a large number of users, building local capacities aimed at raising use efficiency and discussing and exchanging international experiences in the field of network management.

    In light of the fact that Egypt is one of AfIGF founders and supporters at the African and global levels, participating in the work of the Forum is significant as it will enable Egypt to maintain its leading role in Internet governance issues. MCIT will moderate the main session entitled “WSIS issues, including the Future of IGF and the AU Declaration on IG”.
