ITS to provide GCC e-government services
Alduwailah: We have witnessed investment in e-government services double year-on-year in the UAE, KSA and Kuwait

International Turnkey Solutions (ITS) has been chosen by a number of Middle Eastern governments to provide a range of e-government services.

The solutions provider is set to deliver e-government services for Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Qatar and the UAE, it said in a statement.

Yousef Alduwailah, ITS's director of e-government solutions, said that automating government processes was an essential step on the way to becoming a "smart government". He added that the e-government solutions would make it easier to offer government services to citizens more effectively.

"It is encouraging that so many governments within the GCC are taking great strides in order to meet the changing needs of their citizens," he said.

"Specifically we have witnessed investment in e-government services double year-on-year in the UAE, KSA and Kuwait as these countries move toward fully connected services."

The announcement from ITS comes soon after a report from research house IDC, which believes that government spending on ICT in the Middle East is set to reach over US$8 billion in 2014, showing an 11.4% increase year on year.

With much of this spending to go on smart city initiatives, ITS said that it expects more e-government projects to be implemented.
