Abdel Moniem el Tarass, head of the Arab Organization for Industrialization (AOI), came to understanding with German manufacturer Dallmeier on exchanging expertise in the field of beefing up a local industry of security cameras.
In statements on Sunday, Tarass said that agreement with the German company is to transfer modern technologies to Egypt based on the expertise of international companies.
He said the two sides agreed on boosting cooperation in the field of technical expertise, training of human cadres as well as reaching a partnership between AOI and Dallmeier to meet the needs of the local market and the Arab region with a potential of opening up a market for exporting to Africa.
Tarass stressed the importance of establishing a local industry of security and surveillance cameras especially because of the state’s plan to set up new facilities in all sectors in the New Administrative Capital and new urban cities.
The Arab Organization for Industrialization (AOI) is an Egypt-based Arab military organization established in 1975 by Egypt, The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, The United Arab Emirates (UAE) and Qatar state to supervise the collective development of the Arab defense industry. Following a gradual deterioration in relations between the AOI member-states, Egypt became the sole owner of AOI in 1993. As well as meeting the requirements of the Egyptian military, AOI directs spare capacity to civilian programmes, including civilian transport and sanitation equipment.
AOI has approximately 16,000 employees, out of which 1,250 are engineers. AOI fully owns 12 factories and shares in 1 joint-venture, besides the Arab Institute for Development Technology.
Dallmeier is one of the world-leading providers of products for network-based video security solutions and has 35 years of experience in the development and manufacture of high-quality complete solutions for the CCTV/IP sector.
Dallmeier is specialized in the production of innovative IP cameras, Panomera, network cameras, security cameras, HD cameras, DVR, NVR, software as well as IP CCTV products and other video security solutions. The highlight of its product is it can be integrated easily into third party systems thanks to open interfaces (e.g. Onvif).
The Egyptian government has set an objective to dramatically enhance its security measures, which will require security upgrades of all airports, seaports and public facilities. Both the government and the private sector are re-evaluating and upgrading security systems and technologies at various sites.
There is a steady growth of the safety and security market in Egypt with continuous demand for specialized, state-of-the-art technology to manage security issues ranging from security for the general public to transparency of commercial transactions. Increased demand of 15-20 percent is expected over the next few years. Through this venture Egypt is trying to enter in a niche segment, expecting it become another medium of increasing its trade with African block, along with catering to the local demand.
