The Arab Republic of Egypt’s Ministry of Communication and Information Technology has a detailed and easy to find description of the National ICT Policy on their website, which can be found here. The ICT for Development strategy is one aspect of the overall national strategy that can be found using the “ICT for Development” hyperlink on the main ICT Strategy page or by clicking here. These resources are all available in English, which is extremely helpful. I found it quite easy to find information regarding Egypt’s national ICT strategy by utilizing the Ministry of Communication and Information Technology’s website. Additionally, the Ministry makes publications regarding national ICT plans available to the public on their website. In 2003, they country published a report entitled “Egypt’s Vision of the Information Society.” In 2005, the Ministry published a report outlining “the initiatives implemented to bolster Egypt’s transition into a fully-fledged information society , in a report entitled “Egypt’s Information Society.” The next edition of the ICT strategy was published in 2007: “Egypt’s ICT Strategy 2007- 2010.” All of these reports are available in English. However, the most recent ICT strategy publication – “Egypt’s ICT Strategy 2012-2017” – is only available in Arabic.
I found the Ministry’s website to be the most useful resource regarding Egypt’s national ICT strategy. Unlike many other students, researching my country’s ICT plan was relatively easy (especially because the information is available in English). The United Nations also published an ICT Policy Review of Egypt’s national ICT strategy, which is another helpful resource.
