Dubai eGovernment triples presence at GITEX
Dubai eGovernment is tripling its stand space at this year’s GITEX
Dubai eGovernment is tripling its stand space at this year’s GITEX TECHNOLOGY WEEK as part of a move that will allow more government departments to showcase their latest eServices.
Dubai eGovernment, which has been participating at GITEX for nine years, believes the fact that the 2,800-square metre exhibition space it has taken is three times larger than last year will give visitors an even greater chance to explore the wide range of services it now offers.
Visitors to its stand will be able to take part in interactive presentations about the eServices that its various departments provide to the public, businesses and visitors, and gain an insight into the shared services that it offers. More than 2,000 eServices are set to be featured at the show.
Ahmed Bin Humaidan, Director General of Dubai eGovernment, says that all departments which fall under its umbrella are working towards building a knowledge-based economy in Dubai.
“We look forward to this year’s exhibition as it presents an opportunity to get acquainted with the latest IT experiences and solutions and work closer with participating organisations and exchange expertise with them,” says Bin Humaidan.
“We will also try to cater for the needs of our visitors at GITEX, with the goal of improving the eServices in the emirate and enhancing the level of efficiency and excellence within different local government departments in line with our common goal of speeding up the transformation of Dubai into an integrated digital community.”
Dubai eGovernment’s stand will comprise a network of workstations that allow visitors to try out all of the eServices that can be accessed through the Government of Dubai’s official portal: www.dubai.ae. A special website - www.gitex.dubai.ae - for public information covering the services of participating departments and associated events will also be launched.
Bin Humaidan says that by gathering the largest number of government departments in one place, it aims to “stimulate communication and co-operation” among these departments in order to upgrade eServices and encourage the public to explore them.
