Egypt’s President Abdel-Fattah El-Sisi reiterated on Thursday the importance of making digital government services easily available at a suitable cost to institutions and citizens.

The remarks came during a meeting with Prime Minister Mostafa Madbouly, the ministers of defence, military production, foreign affairs, planning, finance, the interior and ICT, in addition to the chairman of the Administrative Control Authority, the director of military intelligence, and the director of the military’s department of information systems.

The meeting dealt with efforts exerted to develop the capabilities of the state via a unified mechanism for digital transformation, El-Sisi’s spokesman Bassam Rady said.

The government has been making efforts to digitalise, by getting rid of paper documentation and introducing online systems, with the aim of saving time and money.

El-Sisi gave directives to continue coordination with the concerned state entities, in order to make these digital services easily available and affordable, Radi added.
