Egypt extends its exporting frontiers as a regional leader by introducing the Export-IT Program to bolster the
domestic ICT industry. ITIDA first launched the program in 2010 to help Egyptian companies grow their exports
from IT/ITES products and services.
By virtue of this program, eligible companies receive direct exports
support on the collected proceeds of their value-added exports within a specified calendar year.
Export-IT ten previous rounds, ITIDA strengthened and broadened support for more than 200 Egyptian companies.
The support amounted to 400 million EGP and the program contributed to IT export sales volume of more than 7.8
