GSMA has announced a partnership with Egypt’s National Telecommunications Regulatory Authority (NTRA) to promote the mobile economy in the North african country.

The goals of the partnership are to establish a framework of cooperation that will recognise the transformative potential of mobile technology for economic growth, job creation, public service and wider digital inclusion of Egypt’s citizens.

The partnership was finalized, with the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) at the MWC currently on in Barcelona, Spain.

“[This] reflects our intention to develop a supportive regulatory environment that is based on international best practices and aimed at attracting long-term investment in mobile network infrastructure and services in Egypt,” Alef Helomy, Egypt’s Minister of Communications and Information Technology, said.

The agreement employs a multi-faceted approach that will address both the supply and demand sides of the Egyptian mobile market, with an intent to also develop best practice in digital and telecoms regulation and innovation in the country.
