Egypt to review open source policies

Egypt is formulating a new open source software strategy, the ICT Minister has told the country’s open source community.

In a meeting in Cairo, Minister Hany Mahmoud noted that a committee had been formed in November to formulate a new strategy on open source software usage in the state administration.  

He set a 3 months limit to finalize this strategy, to be implemented in parallel with a Microsoft Corporation partnership agreement, to achieve a gradual shift towards open source software use.

The Minister met with Egypt Open Source Association representatives to review a number of current issues, including a renewal of an Egyptian Government partnership agreement with Microsoft.
