NTRA Code of Conduct
As regulators, we play a significant role in the Telecom sector in Egypt. We take pride in the fact that our presence in the telecom sector places us in a position of trust with clients, the public and ourselves, but also requires us to remain independent, but never uninvolved. We add value by helping to improve transparency, and consistency of business processes.
This requires that all NTRA staff members be oriented towards correct conduct in the eyes of the client, colleagues and the public at all time.
In order to succeed, we must grow and develop both as individuals and as regulators. Our core values of excellence, teamwork and leadership help us to achieve this growth.
