Eng. Walid Fouad

Regional Manager – Safran Morpho

Our participation in Cairo ICT’s last round had a strong output. During my talk with President El-Sisi on his visit to the company’s booth, I was capable of conveying to him some of the obstacles that stand in the way of expansion of our investments in Egypt. And indeed, several ministries contacted us to overcome those obstacles.

Hazem Metwally,

Cairo ICT has a regional and international reputation for gathering international experts in the ICT sector; therefore, our participation this year was through the latest innovated services under a major slogan which is turning Etisalat Egypt from a mobile operator to an integrated IT solutions provider.

Cairo ICT is the largest and most important IT sector event that targets the increase of trust in the Egyptian economy and attracting more investments. Therefore, our participation came as a confirmation of Xerox’s interest in supporting the Egyptian market in general and IT sector in particular.
