The Academy aims to provide technical support to staff and executives at the information systems and digital transformation units in the state’s administrative apparatus, with a focus on the ministries and entities relocating to the New Administrative Capital.

The meeting addressed Egypt’s digital transformation strategy, which aims to reach a participatory, interconnected and sustainable digital citizen-centric government. The meeting also highlighted the enabling role that MCIT plays to serve citizens, and its efforts to render electronic, paperless services and ensure providing high-quality services through multiple channels.

The Academy plans to hold more interactive meetings and workshops on the digital transformation technologies and Digital Egypt systems. The upcoming meetings will address the cybersecurity and Artificial Intelligence (AI) systems, as well as the ICT infrastructure, in parallel with carrying out digital capacity building programs for employees of the administrative apparatus, in ministries, governorates and government entities.
