Egypt Partakes in MENA-OECD Governance Forum

Egypt, represented by the Ministry of Communications and Information Technology (MCIT), participated in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) - Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) Governance Forum, organized on March 30-31, online, under the theme “Visions for Recovery: Digital Governance and Rule of Law for more open, accessible and efficient public services.” The Forum was held online, in partnership with the MENA-OECD Governance Program Training Centre of Caserta.

On behalf of the ICT Minister Amr Talaat, the Deputy Minister for Institutional Development Ghada Labib participated and delivered a speech in a session, held on March 31, titled “Governing the design and delivery of services in the digital age”. In addition, a recorded speech for the ICT Minister was presented during the event.
The Forum focused on leveraging and governing digitization to deliver better services and citizen-centered justice in the recovery from COVID-19. It will address critical aspects of promoting good governance and supporting competitiveness in the MENA region, which are both crucial to respond to the impact of COVID-19, bolster inclusive development, and foster regional integration and greater resilience in the post-COVID-19 era.
The Forum brought together high-level participants from the MENA region and OECD Member States, including representatives of governments, regional partners, international organizations, civil society and business organizations, to exchange good practices and perspectives on how governments can deliver a better recovery for all.
As part of the Forum, the MENA-OECD Ministerial Conference 2021 is organized on April 1, under the theme “Designing a Roadmap to Recovery in MENA.” The Conference is held online, by the MENA-OECD Initiative on Governance and Competitiveness for Development, and the Government of Tunisia. It will focus on strategies to ensure an inclusive and resilient post-COVID-19 recovery.
The Conference will gather representatives from MENA and OECD governments, regional partners, international organizations, the private sector and civil society. Ministers will be invited to adopt a Ministerial Declaration on Governance and Competitiveness, which will set guiding principles and mutual commitments for collaboration between MENA and OECD governments in the years to come.
OECD was established in 1961 and includes 34 Member States. It aims to assist its Member States to boost their economic growth, employment rates and the trading volume between Member and Non-Member States.
