CAIRO - 23 April 2019: Communications Minister Amr Talaat met on Tuesday with a World Bank delegation to discuss strategies to promote high-speed internet in Egypt.
The WB has been providing technical support for the Communications Ministry and the National Telecom Regulatory Authority (NTRA) in Egypt to help them update their high-speed internet strategy.
WB experts are also helping with an economic model that, once developed, should determine areas where the IT sector could best contribute to economic growth in Egypt.
The WB has, meanwhile, organized a workshop to review success stories in the field of communications.
The workshop also pinpointed investments needed for Egypt to become a regional hub of digital infrastructure in Africa.
