Egypt is on the rise. Since the “Arab Spring” a decade ago, the North African country has been on an upward march and is becoming an important centre for technology innovation.
That’s the view of Essam Elbadri, founder and CEO of Asset Technology Group, a company today owned by South Africa’s EOH Holdings.
In the third episode in a podcast series with executives from iOCO, the systems integrator in the EOH stable, Elbadri unpacks how the technology sector has helped Egypt grow strongly in recent years.
The conversation covers some of the country’s initiatives to grow the ICT sector and the economy, including the ICT 2030 strategy, the New Admistrative Capital smart city and the development of technology parks.
Elbadri also talks about why iOCO is excited about the Egyptian market and why it invested in Asset Technology Group.
