Held by the National Telecommunications Regulatory Authority of Egypt (NTRA) from September 18th to September 22nd, and with the participation of 7 African and Arab countries, proceedings of the Egyptian African Telecom Regulatory Center’s (EG-ATRC) third training session have commenced today. EG-ATRC is held in line with NTRA’s plan to build African cadres in telecommunications as well as exchange experiences, technical and commercial practices with African counterparts in telecom authorities. It also comes in line with the Government’s instructions to reinforce mutual relations with African countries.

Training topics to be embarked upon in EG-ATRC’s third session are type approval and smart cities, as the African governments seek to maximize the utilization of Egypt’s smart city modules; like the New Administrative Capital and the City of New Alamein, etc. To this end, the session’s agenda provides opportunities for seamless communication among African experts to exchange insights and utilize the leading experience of Egypt in this field.

In this regard, NTRA had inaugurated EG-ATRC as the first of its kind in Africa to provide training courses in telecom-regulation. The center actually paves the road for telecom experience to be exchanged across the African countries and aims to achieve a unified vision among telecom regulators, and other relevant African entities, through a specialized training program. Such a training program actually encompasses many academic and professional experts from Egypt who would contribute to a promising digital economy across Africa. Furthermore, EG-ATRC aims to provide training courses for 150 specialized individuals annually, via specialized training courses designed and taught by an elite of international experts.
