NoufEXPO has an­nounced that the 4th Gov­ern­ment Fo­rum: Elec­tronic Ser­vices Per­spec­tives takes off Sun­day at Ar­raya Cen­ter of Court­yard Mar­riott Kuwait City at 6pm. In a spe­cial press re­lease, Magdy Sabry, the Ex­ec­u­tive Man­ager of NoufEXPO an­nounced that EGOV4 is held un­der the pa­tron­age of His High­ness the Prime Min­is­ter Sheikh Jaber Mubarak Al-Ha­mad AL-Sabah. His Ex­cel­lency Sheikh Mo­ham­mad Ab­dul­lah AlMubarak Al-Sabah, Min­is­ter of State for Cabi­net Af­fairs and the Chair­man of the Board of the Cen­tral Agency for In­for­ma­tion Tech­nol­ogy, will in­au­gu­rate the open­ing cer­e­mony. Gov­ern­ment and leg­isla­tive of­fi­cials, IT spe­cial­ists from all gov­ern­ment IT de­part­ments, and in­dus­try spe­cial­ists from Kuwait and abroad will gather un­der one roof to dis­cuss the best means and al­ter­na­tives to boost gov­ern­ment’s fu­ture ser­vices land­scape.

Mr. Sabry added, “EGOV be­came an an­nual event awaited by many global and lo­cal tech­nol­ogy ven­dors, as well as, the ad­min­is­tra­tive and tech­ni­cal staff of gov­ern­ment agen­cies. As pre­vi­ous years, we are pleased to wel­come world-class tech­nol­ogy com­pa­nies from Kuwait and abroad. It is our plea­sure to be joined by a highly dis­tin­guished list of spon­sors: Al­ghanim In­dus­tries, Mi­crosoft, Sy­man­tec, Kuwait Fi­nance House (KFH), Kuwait Telecom­mu­ni­ca­tions Com­pany (Viva), Cisco Sys­tems, Blue Coat Sys­tems, Star­link, Fortinet, and EY.”

Elec­tronic Ser­vices, Dig­i­tal Trans­for­ma­tion, im­mi­nent trends that top world­wide tech­nol­ogy top­ics. First, it fo­cuses on elec­tronic ser­vices and how im­ple­ment­ing new gov­ern­ment cor­re­spon­dence and work­place ser­vices may raise the pro­duc­tiv­ity par. Dig­i­tal trans­for­ma­tion is, def­i­nitely, gain­ing a lot of mo­men­tum as the clear safe path to­wards en­dors­ing in­for­ma­tion tech­nol­ogy in ev­ery as­pect of gov­ern­ment ser­vices and growth plans. This trans­for­ma­tion drives many tech­ni­cal, ad­min­is­tra­tive, leg­isla­tive, and hu­man changes. Fi­nally, cy­ber se­cu­rity be­came an in­ter­na­tional, na­tional, and per­sonal night­mare that has to be dealt with pro­fes­sion­ally and on a con­tin­u­ous ba­sis. To evolve, govern­ments have only one clear path; that is to make best use of these tech­nol­ogy trends and en­dorse them to drive cur­rent and fu­ture growth plans.

Mr. Sabry con­cluded his state­ment by ex­tend­ing sin­cere thanks to CAIT’s man­age­ment and teams as well as NoufEXPO’s teams who joined forces pro­fes­sion­ally and re­lent­lessly to make EGOV4 a suc­cess. He also thanked all gov­ern­ment agen­cies and their IT groups for their con­tin­u­ous sup­port and par­tic­i­pa­tion. Fi­nally, Sabry ex­tended a warm wel­come to all guests wish­ing them a nice stay in Kuwait and a suc­cess­ful en­deavor that ful­fills their net­work­ing and busi­ness de­vel­op­ment plans.
