MY NTRA among WSIS Prizes Champion Projects in e-Government


The National Telecom Regulatory Authority’s interactive mobile application “My NTRA” has been selected as one of the Champion Projects of the World Summit on the Information Society (WSIS) Prizes 2022, Category 7 — AL C7. ICT applications: benefits in all aspects of life — e-government. The application beat out 966 projects.
 
The winners have been announced at the WSIS Forum, organized by the International Telecommunication Union (ITU) on March 15- June 3, with the participation of more than 2,500 experts from 193 countries. The Forum represents the world's largest annual gathering of the ICT for development community. WSIS Forum has proven to be an efficient mechanism for coordination of multi-stakeholder implementation activities, information exchange, creation of knowledge, sharing of best practices and continues to provide assistance in developing multi-stakeholder and public/private partnerships to advance development goals.
 
The selection of My NTRA was based on several criteria, most notably for meeting global e-government standards; supporting the Egyptian national strategy of digital transformation; and making services available in a digital format, as an alternative to traditional methods. In addition, the application helps foster competition and promote innovation; serves both individual and corporate users; and targets different beneficiary groups such as youth, seniors, Persons with Disabilities (PwDs), and users in remote and rural communities, thus facilitating the public access to services nationwide.
 
The application was launched late last year in response to the complaints received by NTRA. It is aimed at covering the needs of users in the telecommunications market and supporting the national digital transformation efforts.
 
My NTRA is a leading application in terms of the number of services it provides to end-users. It has hit 2.3 million downloads, so far. The application serves as an effective tool that helps protect users’ rights, provides information on a variety of services, and assists users when it comes to choosing the best mobile network operator (MNO).
