(Ecofin Agency) - From June 6, 2019, Amr Talaat, Egypt’s prime minister started an official visit in Japan. During the visit, he will discuss training, research and development cooperation in the artificial intelligence sector with his Japanese peer Masatoshi Ishida.
This meeting is a sequel of the one held in Cairo on June 3, 2019, by Amr Talaat and Japan’s ambassador to Egypt Masaki Noke, for stronger IT cooperation between the two countries.
The cooperation sought by Egypt in the artificial intelligence sector will boost its expertise in that segment of the information technology for which a national strategy is being developed. Egypt is gathering every competence required to succeed in the sector once the 5G is available within two or three years.
Since January 2019, it has agreed to partner with many countries on artificial intelligence. This is the case of Russia (on March 19, 2019), Finland (May 26), China (May 26), and Saudi Arabia (May 31).
