MCIT Hosts UNICEF Expert Mission Meeting on COP

The Ministry of Communications and Information Technology (MCIT) is hosting, today, the United Nations Children's Fund (UNICEF) Expert Mission Meeting on Child Online Protection (COP) at MCIT Mohandessin premises.

UNICEF is preparing a report from different countries in the region concerning the status of COP, which is the main objective for holding the meeting. This report would help in framing next steps in COP work. MCIT is keen to provide the Expert Mission with accurate information concerning this matter.

Three meetings are being held with stakeholders. The first meeting gathers government entities and experts. The second one is a special convening of the National Committee for Child Online Protection (COP) and the experts. The third is held to gather representatives from the private sector and the experts and will be attended by COP core team.

MCIT continuously participates in the activities of child online protection, and keeps up with latest international developments in this regard. It participated in all COP meetings, held in Cairo over the past few months—organized by UNICEF and a number of other international bodies—in order to take part in the COP report prepared by UNICEF.
