The Africa Channel plans to make Nigerian films available in the US, Canada and the Caribbean in early 2022, Brendan Gabriel, the channel’s ... vice president of production and creative director, tells The Africa Report.
As of September 2020, Egypt ratified a new banking law that will allow, for the first time, the launch of digital banks.
Bylaws are still being prepared and should come into effect later this year. Thereafter, the Central Bank of Egypt (CBE) will start granting digital banking licenses, for which several traditional banks have already applied, according to media reports.
Early this year, Banque Misr – Egypt’s second largest state bank – appointed French multinational IT company Atos to build its digital bank, which is set to be the first-ever in the most populous Arab nation, after the CBE gave it a tentative thumbs-up.
