iGA, Smart Way discuss ways to promote smart cities in Bahrain

 Information and eGovernment Authority (iGA) Chief Executive, Mohammed Ali Al Qaed, welcomed Smart Way Consulting CEO, Waleed Khalaf and Vice President, Daneh Al Rayes to his office at the iGA’s Isa Town premises, where they discussed plans for cooperation. Smart Way is the organizer of the annual Bahrain Smart Cities Summit. 


The meeting included discussions on how to promote the development of smart cities in the Kingdom, and raise awareness of their many benefits among the public and private sectors, individuals, and Non-Government organizations to help Bahrain keep pace with global developments.


Al Qaed said that the Kingdom has successfully implemented a range of smart city projects, such as providing a robust technical infrastructure linked to eGovernment that is prepared to accommodate future IT requirements. The iGA continues to accelerate digital transformation and launch Artificial Intelligence (AI) applications that will improve efficiency and quality of life for the public. Bahrain adopted fundamental smart city elements during the pandemic through the deployment of advanced technology that minimized the impact on Bahraini society and its economy.


Al Qaed highlighted the private sector’s role in supporting technological progress in the Kingdom, including Smart Way for organizing the annual Bahrain Smart Cities Summit and its efforts in promoting digital transformation in cooperation with government entities. He highlighted the company’s role in providing valuable IT expertise, including Al Rayes’s recent contributions as a jury member of eGovernment Excellence Awards 2021.


Khalaf expressed his appreciation to the iGA for its cooperation, adding that Smart Way stands ready to support pioneering eGovernment initiatives that benefit the Kingdom.
