The announcement was made at the Huawei Cloud Summit Egypt 2024 held in Cairo in the presence of Egypt’s Minister of Information and Communication Technology Amr Talaat.

The launch of the Cairo Region brings Huawei’s total number of cloud regions worldwide to 33.

Each cloud region refers to the physical locations where Huawei deploys data centres to deliver cloud services to customers, according to the Chinese company.

The launch of this cloud region comes shortly after Egypt inaugurated its first-of-a-kind government data and cloud computing centre on Ain Sokhna Road.

The Cairo Region is meant to provide innovative, reliable, secure, and flexible cloud services to individuals, corporate and government users and serve as important digital infrastructure.

“Startups and SMEs are key target beneficiaries of this service, as well as the private sector and students in schools and universities,” Jacqueline Shi, president of global marketing and sales services at Huawei Cloud, told Ahram Online during the event.
