Egypt’s Minister of Communications and Information Technology Amr Talaat has met with Singapore’s Ambassador in Cairo Dominic Goh, to discuss ways of enhancing bilateral cooperation in communications and information technology (CIT).
During the meeting, Talaat reviewed Egypt’s digital strategy and efforts to achieve digital transformation. Part of these official efforts include building Egyptian citizens by providing training programmes in the field of CIT.
It also means the launch and implementation of programmes and initiatives to stimulate technological innovation and entrepreneurship among young people.
The minister stressed the importance of enhancing cooperation between Egypt and Singapore in the field of CIT, in light of the distinguished relations between the two countries. This follows the progress made in the field of emerging technology, including artificial intelligence (AI) and its various applications.
For his part, Goh highlighted his country’s readiness to cooperate with Egypt in capacity building and raising, through a number of world class specialised universities.
