Egypt’s Minister of Communications and Information Technology (MCIT) Amr Talaat said Thursday that the Egyptian government has taken massive strides to a secure smooth digital transformation.
Egyptian President Abdel Fattah El-Sisi inaugurated on Wednesday a number of projects of the Ministry of Communications and Information Technology (MCIT), including ‘Digital Egypt’ platform, which seeks to provide digital government services to citizens.
Egypt has many competitive advantages that increase its likelihood of becoming a global offshoring leader, given the country’s remarkable location and skillful young population.
Talaat pointed out that the State is keen on using emerging technologies to achieve the development goals.
This step is also in line with Egypt's Vision 2030 and the country's digital transformation strategy, the Finance Ministry said in a statement on Tuesday.
The communications minister, in his statement at the House of Representatives Sunday, said his Ministry has made great strides in terms of automated services.
The trial operation of the digital platform started with 34 services in July, Talaat said, adding that 72 more services are expected to be launched by the end of 2020, 210 services in 2021, 170 in 2022 and 98 in 2023.
The platform allows citizens to obtain their governmental services in a very short period of time, compared to heading to government installations.
