    Tripartite Protocol between Egypt, Cyprus, Greece

    Last updated: 25 July 2017
    A tripartite Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) was signed by the governments of Egypt, Cyprus and Greece on fostering cooperation between the three countries in ICT fields, and supporting research, innovation and entrepreneurship.

    Prime Minister Sherif Ismail witnessed, at the General Authority for Investment and Free Zones (GAFI) premises, the ceremony of signing the MoU, signed by the Minister of Communications and Information Technology Yasser ElKady, the Cypriot Minister of Transport, Communications and Works Marios Demetriades, and the Greek Minister of Digital Policy, Telecommunications and Information Nikos Pappas.

    The agreement is an outcome of the fourth trilateral summit meeting held in October 2016 between President Abdel Fattah el-Sisi, the Cypriot President Nicos Anastasiades and the Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras. The three leaders agreed to strengthen cooperation and partnership in several areas, taking advantage of the free trade agreements that each of the three countries approved upon to access new markets.

    The three-year MoU covers a number of other areas of cooperation, including e-skills training and capacity building. The Governments of Egypt, Cyprus and Greece have agreed to establish a specialized center for capacity building and entrepreneurship that will be headquartered in Borg El Arab in Egypt, with offices in Cyprus and Greece. The center aims to train professionals from the three countries on internationally recognized e-skills, and increase opportunities for developing digital skills for their respective workforce through training programs, exchange of experiences and support for Small and Medium-sized Enterprises (SMEs).
