African nations are actively driving digital development to unlock its full potential, with close collaboration being key to maximizing these efforts.

Egypt and Burkina Faso are committed to enhancing their cooperation in the digital sector. This commitment was the focus of discussions between the Egyptian Ambassador to Burkina Faso, Shérif Abdel Kader Abdel Latif Nada, and the Burkinabe Minister of Digital Transition, Posts, and Electronic Communications, Aminata Zerbo/Sabane, on Friday, June 21.

“I came to discuss with the minister the opportunities for bilateral cooperation in the field of digitalization between our two countries. We want to further strengthen this cooperation. Egypt intends to share its expertise in digitalization with Burkina Faso,” stated the Egyptian diplomat following the meeting.

This initiative is part of the Egyptian government’s efforts to implement its digital transformation strategy, “Digital Egypt 2030.” Cairo aims to develop its ICT sector and modernize its national telecom infrastructure, making digitalization a driving force behind the country’s socio-economic development.

Egypt is seeking partnerships with countries like Burkina Faso, which is also actively working to develop its digital sector. Burkina Faso is striving to modernize its public services through various projects aimed at improving administrative efficiency and providing better services to its citizens.

The cooperation between the two countries could enable Burkina Faso to benefit from Egyptian expertise in implementing large-scale digital projects. It could also pave the way for technological partnerships, knowledge exchanges, and joint investments in digital infrastructure, creating new economic opportunities for both nations.
