In Egypt last month at the head of a delegation including 20 Russian companies, Russian Minister of Digital Development, Communications and Information Konstantin Noskov signed a number of cooperation agreements with his Egyptian counterparts in the field of information technology (ICT).

He spoke about the stakes involved in an interview with Al-Ahram Weekly.

What were the agreements finalised during your visit to Cairo?

In 2016, the Ministry of Telecoms and Mass Communications of the Russian Federation signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) on cooperation in telecommunications, postal communication, and information technology with the Egyptian Ministry of Communications and Information Technology (MCIT).

During the visit to Egypt we discussed how to put it into practice. In particular, the MoU provides for the sharing of experiences and information between companies, government bodies, scientific centres and institutions. We are prioritising certain projects like the establishment and management of technological parks, the implementation of e-government technology, and the more efficient use of the radio spectrum, especially with regard to the transfer to 5G networks.
