Information Technology Industry Development Agency (ETIDA) kick-started the issuance of operating permits to companies working in programming development and the production of electronic content at General Authority for Investment & Free Zones' Investors services center.
ETIDA's staff received 11 inquiries to  date about documents necessary for registering the newly-established entities, a step  included within a  plan for activating the single window mechanism. They are also necessary for issuing investment licenses under law 72/2017 with the aim of  providing prompt services to investors.
" ETIDA's representatives are reviewing  the documents copies  through sending them to ETIDA's Patent Rights Office at the 6th of October City's Smart Village," the source told Al-Mal newspaper.
PRO has issued operating permits in the area of producing and developing electronic content  to Equip Programming company, as another case is under discussion.
On the same vein, ETIDA is collaborating also with Egypt Trust Company and Egypt Clearance House, both specializing in  electronic signature, so as to issue E-Signature certificates to the benefit of  local and foreign investors as a means of registering at GAIFZ. ETIDA aims at  unifying and simplifying procedures and putting an end to multiplicity of issuers, thus bolstering the ease of  doing business.
