In a significant move towards advancing Egypt’s technology sector, the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) and the Information Technology Industry Development Agency (ITIDA) have officially inked a new five-year project agreement. The primary objective of this collaboration, as stated in a recent announcement on Wednesday, is to fuel digital innovation and foster the growth of the tech-driven startup ecosystem in the country.
