Samsung will manufacture 1 mn tablets each year in Egypt after being awarded a tender led by the education, communications and military production ministries, sources tell FollowICT. The tablets, which will be used to aid student learning at public schools across the country, will be assembled at a new USD 30 mn factory, the sources said, without elaborating on which parties will fund the new facility. The products will be made using local components and sold to the Education Ministry at a fixed price, that has yet to be disclosed. The ministry had tapped Samsung back in 2018 to supply 1 mn tablets for the 2018-2019 academic year under a USD 240 mn contract.

Other things we’re keeping an eye on this morning:

  • German airline Condor will operate a flight from Frankfurt to Hurghada every Thursday throughout the month of February, and will increase its number of flights as of March.
  • Flights between Kazakhstan and Hurghada are set to resume mid-March, and should total around 38 flights per month.
