Arab Organizations

Egypt is actively engaged with Arab organizations in various initiatives to promote and expand regional integration and development in ICT, as well as harness the power of digital transformation in enhancing the life of the Arab population.

Within this context, Egypt is supporting various Arab countries’ efforts to develop their telecommunications sectors, including through sharing its knowledge and experience; promoting best practices and successful models; and coordinating and unifying Arab stances on ICT-related issues for international discussion. Egypt also seeks to share and exchange with Arab countries policy positions on the Arab level in order to better promote them in multilateral forums.


The League of Arab States (LAS) is a regional organization of Arab nations, established to draw closer the relations between members and coordinate collaboration between them to safeguard their independence and sovereignty and to consider their affairs and interests.

Formed in Cairo in March 1945 by Egypt, Iraq, Jordan, Lebanon, Saudi Arabia and Syria, it has now 22 members, including Algeria, Bahrain, Comoros, Djibouti, Egypt, Iraq, Jordan, Kuwait, Lebanon, Libya, Mauritania, Morocco, Oman, Palestine, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Somalia, Sudan, Syria, Tunisia, United Arab Emirates, and Yemen.

With an approach based on open communication and knowledge-sharing, Egypt plays a leading role in the Arab League’s ICT-related activities especially in what relates to the Arab Telecommunications and Information Council of Ministers (ATICM) and its relevant bodies.

Egypt is also an active member in the different working groups under the LAS and ATICM such as the Arab ICT strategy group and the AI Arab group, as well as standardization regional groups, in addition to a number of other groups. Whether through MCIT, the regulator or other relevant entities, Egypt seeks to enrich the ongoing dialogue on the regional level and contribute to formulating relevant projects and/or stances.

Among the topics prominent on the Arab agenda are: connecting Arab Internet networks, implementing child online safety measures, managing registration of Arabic top-level domains, establishing a region-wide framework for e-signatures and electronic transactions and Internet governance among other issues.
