Over the past few years, the GCC nations have begun to recognise the importance of e-Governance in economic development.
Ali Al Kamali, managing director of Datamatix group, speaking on the opening day of the 14th GCC e-Government and e-Services Forum said that “The GCC nations, having understood the importance, have set about developing e-Government readiness strategies and investing in necessary technological infrastructure. As a result, e-Government readiness in this region has steadily and significantly improved,”. The five-day forum aimed to support and promote the development of e-Government and e-Services in the region. The event is being held under the theme of “Top 100 e-Government and e-Services projects.”
