    On Behalf of President El-Sisi, ICT Minister Partakes in Transform Africa Summit 2018

    Kigali, 7 May 2018

    The Minister of Communication and Information Technology Yasser ElKady, on behalf of President Abdel Fattah El-Sisi, headed to Kigali, Rwanda— leading a high-level delegation— to participate in Transform Africa Summit 2018, held on May 8-10, under the theme "Accelerating Africa’s Single Digital Market”.

    This year’s summit is expected to attract over 4,000 participants, including heads of state and government, African ICT ministers, officials of African organizations and associations and representatives of major ICT international and regional companies and institutions.

    The first Transform Africa Summit was held in the Rwandan capital, Kigali, in October 2013 under the auspices and in the presence of the Rwandan President, with the participation of seven other African Presidents of: Mali, Burkina Faso, Senegal, Kenya, Southern Sudan, Uganda and Gabon. During that Summit, Smart Africa initiative was launched, aiming at using ICT tools to promote the economic and social development of the African continent and to meet the challenges of sustainable development in the African countries.

    Egypt joined Smart Africa initiative in November 2016. This accession was announced during the African symposium, held at Cairo ICT 2016. The Ministry of Communications and Information Technology (MCIT) has adopted a project that aimed at promoting innovation and entrepreneurship among African young people, adopting their successful innovations and helping them to market these innovations. This is in addition to providing job opportunities for African young people by training them in the fields of outsourcing.
