    ICT Minister Meets Representatives of Shenzhen Goodix, Si-Ware Systems

    Cairo, 4 October 2019

    The Minister of Communications and Information Technology Amr Talaat has met with Mohy Abdelgany, the Vice President of Shenzhen Goodix Technology Co. Ltd. for wireless communication technology, and the CEO of Si-Ware Systems Hisham Haddara.

    The meeting comes in the framework of Goodix’s acquisition of the intellectual property and patents of Si-Ware’s Application-Specific Integrated Circuit (ASIC) business, and establishing “Goodix Technology” Center of Excellence (CoE) in Cairo.

    During the meeting, Talaat ascertained that the Ministry of Communications and Information Technology (MCIT) is working on implementing a comprehensive strategy for deepening the local industry and increasing electronics exports. MCIT is also keen on collaborating with international companies and supporting Egyptian companies specializing in this field.

    For his part, Abdelgany stated that Goodix is a Chinese company with a marketing value of about $ 13 billion USD. He said that the acquisition and establishing the CoE in Cairo will help leverage distinct Egyptian calibers in integrated circuit design to accelerate developing its innovative products in the future.

    Haddara, on the other hand, highlighted that Si-Ware, with its excellence and leadership in the field of integrated circuit design in Egypt, is proud to have attracted such leading global company to establish a new design center in Cairo through that acquisition.

    The ICT Minister's Advisor for Technology Innovation, Electronics and Training Hossam Osman attended the meeting.

    MCIT is handling the implementation of Egypt Makes Electronics (EME) presidential initiative to transform Egypt into a regional hub for designing and manufacturing advanced electronics for African, Arab and European markets. This is in addition to harnessing electronics industry as one of the main props of Egypt’s economic growth and a major contributor to increasing the size of Egyptian exports and decreasing that of imported electronics to the local market, thus creating hundreds of thousands of jobs.
