International/Specialized Organizations

Egypt is a member of a number of specialized international organizations, concerned with ICT or with issues related to ICTs. Among those organizations are policy and business oriented organizations, or specialized ones.

Egypt’s involvement in international organizations and initiatives in ICT – which includes holding positions of responsibility, hosting events, leading groups and engaging in joint activities, studies or events– enables it to grasp the international scene, to discuss and influence decisions that shape international telecommunication policies, to focus international attention on the achievements and potential of the Egyptian ICT sector, and to keep abreast of international standards.

Among such organizations, the EU has a special status by virtue of the historical ties with Egypt in different domains, which are now highly influenced by the digital transformation. The OECD on the other hand, offers Egyptian expertise the opportunity to engage in significant discussions, studies and policies with leading economies across the globe to name some examples.


The International Organization of La Francophonie was established on 20 March 1970, with the aim to materialize active solidarity among its member states.

La Francophonie includes 56-member States, besides 14 countries that have observer status, which represent more than one-third of member States of the UN.

Egypt joined the organization in 1970, and Dr. Boutros Ghali was the first secretary-general of the organization from 1997 to 2002.

MCIT actively represented Egypt in the Digital working Group. Egypt took active part in the discussions related to the digital economy.
