Minister of Communications and Information Technology Amr Talaat on Monday 8/4/2019 said the time is ripe for Egypt to enter into a real partnership with Saudi Arabia in the field of digital economy.
Speaking at the Egyptian-Saudi forum on digital economy, in the presence of Saudi Communications Minister Abdullah Alswaha, Talaat added that now is the time to give more attention to the Information and communications technology (ICT) sector, which he hopes to be one of the key aspects of cooperation between the two countries.
Also, the communications minister noted that he agreed with the Saudi side to strengthen bilateral cooperation in this important area.
The forum saw serious and effective discussions between the Egyptian and Saudi companies to come up with integrated technological solutions in all aspects of communication between the two countries, which in turn could contribute to securing more jobs for young people and providing earning opportunities in the region, Talaat said.
The communications ministry is seeking to establish a knowledge-based digital economy and turn from traditional services into digital ones, he asserted.
