Singapore based IT company, Infocomm Development Authority (IDA) is working with ictQATAR to establish a new e-government project. The project called Qatar Services Infrastructure (QSi) project, a fast developing e-government initiative, will provide the government of Qatar with a rich and highly integrated centralised software platform, which helps accelerate the delivery of public e-services on the Internet.
The pilot scheme, Company Registration e-Service, is in collaboration with Qatar's Ministry of Business & Trade. IDA was also assisting Qatar in establishing an integrated system for the Customs & Ports General Authority. Once implemented it will help Customs & Ports General Authority to speedily issue export and import permits for various commodities in co-ordination with the departments concerned. IDA is also involved in project called Hukoomi, the user-friendly portal, allows citizens, residents, businesses and visitors to easily access government information and services any time, day or night.
Through its experience with Singapore's BackPack.NET project, IDA assisted in identifying Singapore infocomm companies with the necessary experience to support ictQATAR in its ambitions.
