Egypt’s eGovernment Implementation Plan 2030 is ambitious and has the potential to make a significant impact on the country. The Plan is based on five pillars:

  1. Digital transformation: digitize all government services and make them accessible online.
  2. Digital inclusion: ensure that all Egyptians have access to the internet and e-services.
  3. Digital skills: train Egyptians on the skills they need to succeed in the digital economy.
  4. Digital innovation: promote innovation in the Egyptian technology sector.
  5. Cybersecurity: protect Egypt’s digital infrastructure from cyberattacks.

Marking a major milestone in the implementation of the eGovernment Plan, the government developed the Digital Egypt Platform in 2018, which provides citizens with access to a wide range of government services online. In addition, the government of Egypt has also passed multiple laws to regulate the use of electronic signatures and to protect personal data since the launch of the eGovernment Plan.

GovStack approach

The Egyptian government is implementing the so-called GovStack Plan, aiming to transform the government into a digital platform that provides citizens with convenient, secure, and efficient access to services. The GovStack Plan directly contributes to the implementation of Egypt’s national eGovernment Plan and includes the following activities:

  • Building a GovStack platform
  • Migrating and adapting existing services to GovStack
  • Developing new services based on the GovStack approach

Where we stand

Egypt hosted a big GovStack launch event in November 2022 kickstarting the cooperation with Ministry of Communications and Information Technology (MCIT). From August 20th – 30th, 2023, GovStack held a ten-day deep dive workshop with the Government of Egypt and its prominent ICT community. The workshop trained participants on the GovStack approach by introducing the majority of GovStack building blocks. The Egyptian ecosystem was very engaged and fruitful discussions led to a great learning experience on both sides – GovStack and Egyptian stakeholders. In the end, concrete Egyptian demands and requirements were formulated and an implementation roadmap for the GovStack Plan was developed.

As an outcome of the roadmap, the Government of Egypt and GovStack are jointly developing a prototype for an application of a universal healthcare system use case. This use case will be built on GovStack Building Blocks, including the Consent building block and will impact citizens’ daily life.

In addition, E-Learning content for capacity building for all GovStack enthusiasts is being developed. The content is being designed to be accessible and interesting for technology experts and non-technology experts alike.
