The Information Technology Industry Development Agency, ITIDA, is the Egyptian business partner making sure that you get all the help you need. We are primarily concerned with building the capacities of local IT companies, attracting and servicing multi-national IT companies, and growing a qualified, sustainable, and deployable talent pool. ITIDA adheres to a Public-Private Partnership mode to achieve the goals of the IT industry and create a business environment for you where cooperation is a salient feature.
ITIDA is the executive IT arm of the Ministry of Communications and Information Technology, MCIT, and is located in the heart of a modern business environment at the Smart Village. With local and international outreach, ITIDA plays a fundamental role as a one-stop-shop for foreign direct investors seeking to enhance their global offering using what Egypt has to offer and the competitive advantages of the country.
Led by Chief Executive Officer, Eng. Yasser El Kady, ITIDA extends a helping hand to your business and provides the Egyptian IT industry with the right tools to increase IT/ ITES exports. ITIDA is aware of the importance of innovation and talent to your prosperity and that is why we leave no stone unturned to ensure sustainable talent supply and great innovations.
ITIDA actively pursues two broad goals: building the capacities of Egypt’s local information and communications technology (ICT) industry and attracting foreign direct investments to boost the ICT sector locally and globally.
As a government entity, ITIDA works in collaboration with the Ministry of Communications & Information Technology (MCIT) and the private sector to support the quality of IT services and applications.
ITIDA offers a number of services that are aimed at supporting and nurturing its home ICT industry and ensuring that Egypt is well-equipped to support local and international companies. These services range from support packages for Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs) through to comprehensive education and training packages that focus on developing Egypt’s highly ambitious pool of graduates, in turn feeding the large number of experience IT employees who live and work in the country.
It is through these services and incentives that ITIDA is able to increase local and export demand, develop the skills of its talent base, improve the country’s infrastructure and create an open and secure business environment that is attractive to both local and multinational organisations.
