Egypt’s ICT sector grows by 15% despite COVID-19: Min.

Despite the coronavirus pandemic and its ramifications, Information and Communications Technology (ICT) sector was able to achieve a growth rate of 15.2 percent during financial year of 2019/2020, according to ICT Minister Amr Talaat.

Talaat explained that the crisis caused by the emerging coronavirus has resulted in opportunities to learn and work from distance; pointing out that distance learning gave the ministry the opportunity to double the number of trainees, in line with its efforts to double the branches of training institutes in the governorates.

The minister added that job opportunities in their traditional form will always be limited within the scope of the local economy, hence the importance of working remotely through freelance platforms that contribute to removing borders so that the labor market becomes the entire globe.
