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 Arab ICT Organization (AICTO) is an Arab governmental organization working under the aegis of the League of Arab States (LAS). It was established in 2001 in accordance with the resolution of the Council of the League of Arab States.

With its headquarters in Tunis, AICTO aims at developing ICTs throughout the Arab region, providing the necessary mechanisms to support cooperation between AICTO members, and promote and enrich common policies and strategies to develop vital technological domains.

Egypt plays a key role in AICTO, serving as a member of the AICTO management committee and vice-chair of the AICTO board, in addition to being an active participant in AICTO activities and workshops.
