Chairman Word

Dear Members,
The journey from 2004 until today has been very challenging and fulfilling. Yet, with our loyal members and supportive partners, we were able to achieve our goals and help ICT companies all over the region. We have faith that the best is yet to come, and the future holds great potential for our industry.

Egypt economic and political landscape is changing radically, and EiTESAL is adapting fast, empowering this change and contributing to the goals of Egypt’s 2030 strategy. We are paving the way for companies to contribute to Digital Egypt initiatives.

We aim to empower innovation, industry development and national transformation through a robust strategy with a clear vision and mission. However, there is more that still needs to be done, especially in bridging the gap between the global and local market and supporting companies to develop competitive products to compete worldwide, building a better tomorrow for the ICT industry in Egypt.
A complete set of new fresh services and programs are now being launched to serve the ICT sector in Egypt. The new board strategy has four main pillars.

  • The first pillar is organizational resilience with the strategic objective to increase EiTESAL sustainability.
  • The second pillar is membership services, new programs will be delivered and current ones are now under restructuring.
  • The third pillar will be a collaboration between EITESAL and governmental, academic, or international entities to serve EiTESAL’s goal to provide exposure for our members under our slogan “CONNECTING THE DOTS”.
  • The fourth pillar is the innovation progression interacting with the ecosystem.
    As technology is changing and new technologies are emerging, the new board is committed to excelling in serving you over the years to come.
