The conference, entitled “Human Capital Development for Progress,” will be held in cooperation with the IEEE section in Egypt.

    ITI Director Dr. Mohamed Salem said the conference aims at expanding the interest circle as well as shedding more light on the efforts exerted for developing human resources on all levels. The purpose of such efforts, he noted, is to raise the competitive edge of the Egyptian workforce in the international employment market in different fields.

    The conference comes concurrent with the rapid growth the Egyptian ICT sector has been witnessing in the recent years. This year’s event has special importance as it is expected to shed light on the major challenges facing the global human resource development field together with means of boosting such dynamic industry, which has imposed itself on the world agenda.
