    The Organization for European Economic Cooperation (OEEC) was established in 1947. The mission of the OECD is to promote policies that will improve the economic and social well-being of people around the world. The OECD provides a forum in which governments work together to share experiences and seek solutions to common problems.

    Egypt joined the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) in 2007. MCIT and a number of other Egyptian government ministries are members of OECD specialized committees.

    The Ministry of Communications and Information Technology in Egypt (MCIT) is a Regular Observer in the Committee on Digital Economic Policy (CDEP) since 2008.

    MCIT is represented in the committee for Information, Computer and Communications Policy (ICCP) and its three subsidiary working parties: the Working Party on Security and Privacy in the Digital Economy (WPSPDE), the Working Party on Communications Infrastructure and Services Policy (WPCISP) and the Working Party on Measurement and Analysis of the Digital Economy (WPMADE).

    The parties are responsible for discussing key issues related to ICT policy making on the international arena. CDEP Committee meets and its three subsidiary working parties twice a year and regularly organize workshops and conferences.

    Egypt, represented by MCIT, is a member in the OECD Ministerial Steering Group given its valuable contributions to its work for the Committee on Digital Economic Policy and affiliated subcommittees. Egypt is the only participant from developing countries and from non-member countries.

    Egypt’s ICT strategy 2014 -2020 was presented to the committee members in December 2014 meetings. An article entitled “Achieve the digital economy through ICT, to provide prosperity, freedom and social equity for all” also featured Egypt’s ICT strategy 2014- 2020 in the 2015 Digital Economy Outlook.
