ICT regulator urges attendance at World Summit on the Information Society 2015
The UAE's Telecommunications Regulatory Authority (TRA) today announced it has urged UAE government departments to participate in the 2015 World Summit on the Information Society (WSIS), to be held at the International Telecommunication Union (ITU) headquarters in Geneva from 28 to 30 May.
The WSIS, apart from serving as a forum for ICT issues, also awards Project Prizes in 18 categories.
"[The UAE National Committee for Information Society's] initiative comes as part of our ongoing commitment to reinforce the country's position on the global information society map, through submitting a number of leading UAE initiatives and projects in this field," said HE Hamad Obaid Al Mansoori, director general of TRA. "All these efforts fall under the wider vision adopted by the federal and national government entities, to accomplish the transformation process towards a smart government."
UAE government entities have a variety of opportunities to take part in WSIS 2015, including participation in the National Committee annual report, which will be showcased regularly at WSIS.
