The Mobile World Congress (MWC) kicked off on Monday in Barcelona, Spain and will run until 2 March. Egypt is participating in the event with a high-level delegation headed by Minister of Communications and Information Technology Amr Talaat.
The exhibition is the most prominent annual global event for mobile phones and related industries in the world and is organised by the International Association of Mobile Networks (GSMA) with the participation of about 1,800 exhibitors from 183 countries and in the presence of decision makers, experts, officials of international organisations, major companies operating in the field of mobile phones, specialists in related technologies, and pioneers of the mobile phone industry from around the world.
On the side-lines of his participation in the MWC Exhibition, Talaat is scheduled to hold two-day meetings with a number of ministers, government officials, officials of international organisations, and major international companies working in the field of communications and information technology to discuss cooperation in related fields.
He will also witness the signing of a number of agreements with international companies specialised in the field.
The MWC Exhibition aims to shed light on important issues and the latest innovations in the mobile phone industry and 5G services. Its activities include holding a number of lectures, workshops, and interactive discussions with the participation of experts and investors. Competitions are also held between start-ups, while the new releases of the world’s leading technology companies in the mobile phone industry are reviewed.
