09/02/2022

On Monday, 07/02/2022 Banque Misr signed a collaboration protocol with the Ministry of Communications and Information Technology (MCIT), which was witnessed by H.E. Dr. Amr Talaat – Minister of Communications and Information Technology and Mr. Mohamed El-Etreby – Chairman of the Board of Banque Misr; and signed by Mr. Akef El Maghraby – Vice Chairman of the Board of Banque Misr and Eng. Khaled El-Attar – Deputy Minister of Communications and Information Technology. The event was also attended by Mr. Ihab Dorra – Head of Branches and Retail Banking and the leadership of both Banque Misr and MCIT.

This protocol is in line with the Egyptian state’s strive towards building a digital society, strengthening the country’s communication and IT infrastructure and improving digital services rendered by government entities. MCIT had launched the Digital Egypt platform for transforming government services to fast and efficient digital solutions that facilitate all types of government services in 2020, following years of meticulous preparation of IT infrastructure, with the aim of offering a variety of digital services under a unified and convenient application. Examples include civil status services, social insurance, legal cases, real estate taxation, courts, commercial registration and licenses, land and vehicle registry, documentation and supply. Services are set to be developed in sequence, until all government services are covered in a facilitated, personal and updated manner.

The protocol includes integrating Banque Misr and Digital Egypt platform, enabling the Bank’s customers to benefit from all the platform’s services, via BM’s mobile and internet banking applications. Reciprocally, the Digital Egypt platform will also display a link on its home page to direct the Bank’s customers to use BM’s mobile and internet banking services.

An index of available services on Digital Egypt platform will also be offered, through an API established between the platform and Banque Misr, which will be able to acquire certain G2G government services. A legal agreement will also be signed with each government unit or Ministry.

The protocol is in line with the Bank’s strive towards developing its services and expanding offerings available through electronic means and channels. Banque Misr has consistently partaken in various initiatives and protocols that serve members of the community, with its values and business strategies reflecting Banque Misr’s commitment to achieving sustainable development for the Egyptian economy
