Egypt Partakes in OECD-CDEP Meeting

Egypt, represented by the Ministry of Communications and Information Technology (MCIT), is participating in the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) Committee on Digital Economy Policy (CDEP) Meeting, held on May 16-18, in Paris, France.

During the meeting, a number of key topics will be discussed, including the Recommendation of the OECD Council on Information and Communication Technologies (ICTs) and the Environment; a report on the overall progress made on the implementation of the Going Digital horizontal project; and a report on CDEP Working Parties' meetings updates and key work items.

OECD was established in 1961 and includes 34 member-states. OECD aims to assist states to increase their economic growth, employment rates and the trading volume between member and non-member states.

OECD plays an important role in the ICT sector service through the preparation of studies and research that help governments in comparing different policy experiences and find solutions to common problems. This is in addition to its role in coordinating domestic and international policies of the countries and identifying good practices.

MCIT joined OECD in 2008, representing Egypt in the Committee for Information and Communication and Computer Policy which is known now as the Committee on Digital Economy Policy (CDEP).
