    Minister of Communications and Information Technology Dr. Tarek Kamel witnessed today the signing of a cooperation agreement between Information Technology Industry Development Agency (ITIDA) and Atos Origin, an international IT service and consulting firm, after setting the process of carrying out the capacity building program for Egyptian IT companies.
