In March 2015, Ream Assad, the company’s director of investors’ relations and CEO of Raya Data Centre, told Daily News Egypt the company is considering a number of the mega projects the Ministry of Communications and Information Technology listed at the Economic Summit in March.
Among the projects the company is studying are the “smart electricity metres and Smart Village, in addition to new and renewable energy projects”, Assad said. “We are considering competition mechanisms for these projects, whether through the local consortium or partnerships with our foreign partners,” she added.
