Egypt sends emissary on high-tech mission
Mr. Kamel said the Egyptian work force is an attraction because IT firms “realize that we have Arabic-speaking human resources with a multilingual background — that has other differential advantages in terms of geographical location, in terms of growth in the local market and growing local market demand, [and] in terms of excellent infrastructure that connects us with the rest of the world.”
He added: “We have 250,000 university graduates each year. If we provide 10 percent of them with the right [IT] skills, we will be doing the right thing for the country.” Along with seeking the world’s IT business, Egypt is taking a role in terms of Internet governance, covering the structure of the World Wide Web.
Egypt will host the Internet Governance Forum this November, Mr. Kemal said, and he hopes to investigate “what role can the international societies and communities and constituencies play in Internet governance issues.”
At the same time, Mr. Kemal said, Egypt is determined to keep the Internet an open communication system. “I think our approach was always not regulation, [but it] was always deregulation as much as we can, and this is what we have proven in the last 10 years in the evolution of the Internet in Egypt. We have involved the private sector heavily, and a strong partnership with a civil society.”
