Emerging information and communication technology (ICT) is setting the pace for a changing, competitive and dynamic global marketplace and representing an enabling platform for business and socioeconomic development in the 21st century. In that respect, developing nations are urged to keep pace regularly with the developments taking place in the developed world through the design and implementation of plans for universal access in terms of ICT literacy and its effective utilization for developmental purposes. It is important to note that building the ICT infrastructure will not realize quantum leaps in the development process unless it is coupled with concrete projects and activities that engage the community at large with its different stakeholders irrespective of their locations whether urban or remote, gender or background. This paper describes the evolution of the ICT sector in Egypt over the last decade as an integral element of the nation’s overall development process within the context of a an emerging economy and the various growing potentials ICT offers for its socioeconomic development.
