TRA develops e-Government Portal for GCC countries
Portal launched at meeting of GCC e-Government Ministerial Committee
The UAE's Telecommunications Regulatory Authority (TRA) has developed an e-Government Portal for GCC countries, launched by the GCC e-Government Ministerial Committee.
The committee announced the launch at its fourth meeting, held in Doha on Tuesday.
The portal provides content in both Arabic and English and was designed "in accordance with international standards and the new global practices and trends such as the promotion of e-participation and access to open government data", the TRA said in a statement.
The portal offers information on e-government programmes for GCC countries and provides direct links to e-services offered by the member states' portals. It also provides a section featuring important events and news in each country and updates related to the General Secretariat.
