Egypt 2019 - ICT

With the government prioritising economic diversifi¬cation, Egypt’s digital transformation continued apace in 2018. Although the country’s mobile market appears to have already reached saturation in terms of subscribers, exponential increases in data use on the back of the 4G rollout, as well as the prospect of a sizeable fixed-line network expansion, are expected to continue to drive revenue growth for telecoms in the near future. Guided by its ICT 2030 Strategy, which aims to transform Egypt into a telecoms and tech centre on both a regional and global scale, government support remains key with infrastructure investments, tax incentives for tech parks and manufacturing projects. Private sector support for the nascent tech start-up industry offers promising prospects for the country. This chapter contains interviews with Amr Talaat, Minister of Communications and Information Technology; and Adel Hamed, CEO, Telecom Egypt.
