    Egypt, represented by the National Telecom Regulatory Authority (NTRA), will take part in Mobile 360 – Africa that will be held by the GSMA on July 11 – 13 in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania, gathering operators, government officials, ICT, finance, NGO and media leaders across Sub-Saharan Africa and beyond to evaluate how to elevate access across the region with focus on digital inclusion, network coverage and customers' quality of experience.

    Mobile 360 – Africa is to explore how by putting mobile connectivity at the forefront of national digital strategies, African leaders can leverage the power of mobile to build smart communities. It also aims to cover key developments, draw future roadmaps in Africa and outline new strategies.

    Participants will be able to share ideas and best practices, discuss trends and innovations, learn from workshops, and meet potential customers and business partners. The event is designed to connect start-ups with regional mobile operators, where local start-ups and entrepreneurs are invited to showcase their innovative ideas and create invaluable business connections. The event will also feature the Mobile Money Leadership Forum, which is an opportunity to share market insights, identify future innovations and discuss the evolution of the industry.

    NTRA participation is significant, where this regional event is a golden opportunity for sharing expertise, maintaining ongoing relationships between NTRA and GSMA, and communicating with African operators and regulators. NTRA will, also, participate in the Mobile Money Leadership Forum, which will be held on July 13 and will discuss the latest developments in mobile financial services in the Egyptian market.

    Mobile 360 - Africa serves as an extension of established GSMA conferences which highlight the work of Mobile for Development focusing on increasing access to and use of life-enhancing mobile services, accelerating socio-economic improvements for the underserved, especially women, rural and youth, particularly in digital inclusion, financial inclusion and identity for the unregistered.
