The Chamber of Information Technology and Communication (CIT) is adopting a number of key axes in its future strategy, mainly encouraging creativity and innovation among all companies, said Walid Gad, chairperson of the CIT.
He added that the chamber will focus on maximising the financial capabilities of member companies, cooperating with various civil society organisations working in the local market, and supporting the executive body of the chamber. In addition, the chamber will allocate up to 10% of its budget to working groups, provide detailed studies of the target markets, and support the increase of various financial resources.
There are eight main items in the CIT strategy, including developing corporate, local, and external business; building on innovation and creativity; communicating with relevant stakeholders; localising technology; developing and financing the chamber by forming a committee to provide financial resources; and communicating with financing institutions to implement projects for the benefit of the sector’s companies.
The CIT also aims at organising commercial visits to foreign markets within the “Bridges” programme, as well as receiving similar visits from foreign companies.
The chamber also seeks to study targeted markets for expansion and implement an electronic portal to promote the services and products of the member companies.
