ICT Minister Receives Uganda Ambassador to Egypt

The Minister of Communications and Information Technology Atef Helmy received today Uganda Ambassador to Egypt Richard Laus Angualia on the occasion of assuming his new post in Cairo.

During the meeting, achievements of mutual cooperation between the two countries in the ICT sector have been discussed including the professional training of 120 Ugandan calibers in outsourcing where they have been qualified to train 3000 trainees, thus providing numerous job opportunities for Ugandan youth.

This is in addition to EG-CERT conducting a number of training courses in Kampala, the Ugandan capital, to train specialized calibers on establishing and managing UG-CERT which was inaugurated in March last year.

Moreover, both parties deliberated Ugandan ICT Minister’s expected visit to Egypt in the third quarter of the current year. Future cooperation was also discussed; such as, extending maritime cables from Egypt to Uganda, as well as projects of documenting cultural and natural heritage between both parties.
