    ICT Minister Heads Mission to US for Strategic Partnerships

    Cairo, 10 March 2017

    The Minister of Communications and Information Technology Yasser ElKady is heading to the United States of America on an official mission—during March 13-23—to the cities of the West Coast and New York. The visit aims to promote investments in the ICT sector, and develop Egypt-US strategic partnerships in advanced industries and technologies.
    The mission is in line with Egypt’s President's key assignments to the sector, which includes establishing a promising industry in the electronics field within three years; creating a base of specialists—with 16000 trainees initially—in advanced technological areas; and creating knowledge environments across Egypt through technology parks that will, in turn, promote the ICT Egyptian industry and create purely Egyptian knowledge and high-quality products competing globally.

    The mission agenda encompasses holding a number of meetings with executive officials of global multinationals in the technology development and information systems including Oracle, SAP, General Electric, Dell, Cisco, HP, Synopsys, Mentor Graphics, Honeywell and Infor. This is in addition to companies specialized in the field of big data management such as Cloudera; e-payments services companies such as Visa International and MasterCard; and major international companies in the field of call centers and outsourcing such as Teleperformance and Sutherland. The meetings also embrace other companies including research and advisory firms such as IDC and A.T. Kearney. The agenda comprises visits to some academic institutions, aiming to discuss cooperation in the field of technological innovation, entrepreneurship and incubation of startups.

    The Egyptian ICT sector attracts international technology companies, where many of them selects Egypt as a destination for developing products and establishing international technical support centers. Providing investment advantages and incentives, and competent human calibers capable of competing globally are among the factors for which Egypt is selected as a favored destination.
