Egypt’s President Abdel-Fattah El-Sisi met on Sunday with visiting CEO of Vodafone Group Nick Read to discuss cooperation between the group and Egypt’s IT and communications sector.
El-Sisi told Read that Cairo is seeking fruitful and constructive cooperation with global companies that have extensive experience in different fields, presidential spokesman Bassam Rady said.
These companies are seen as development partners, the president said.
El-Sisi discussed efforts to boost Vodafone investments in Egypt given the company’s knowledge in the fields of communications and digital transformation.
Egypt is seeking to benefit from Vodafone’s knowhow in terms of managing facilities and new cities, which are key factors in the government’s plan to go digital and achieve comprehensive development, El-Sisi said.
Read said he was pleased with the comprehensive development process in Egypt.
