The latest infographic noted that the reasons why international companies prefer Egypt to provide outsourcing services are due to many factors including growing and training workforce, 600k college graduates enter labour market annually in addition to 200k Egyptian MCIT targeted to training during 2022 with EGP1.1bn investment.

It further mentioned that advanced infrastructure is another factor, adding that Egypt spent More than $2bn to develop internet infrastructure besides providing More than 1mn office spaces and more than 8 high tech and knowledge parks.
