CITC Governor: STC is the Ideal Saudi ICT Representative in International Forums
H.E. Governor of the Communications and Information Technology Commission (CITC), Dr. Abdulaziz S. Al-Rwais, visited on 27 March, 2017 the exhibit of STC Group currently participating in Mobile World Congress (MWC) in Barcelona. During the visit, Dr. Al-Rwais met with STC’s officials and discussed the latest global ICT developments. He also visited all different sections of the exhibit and was briefed on the importance and nature of STC’s participation in this global gathering. “I am pleased to be here in STC’s exhibit in this significant and advanced conference. STS is unequivocally the ideal Saudi ICT representative in international forums,” Dr. Al-Rwais said in his press statement after the visit. He added: “This participation demonstrates the presence and advancement of our national ICT sector as well as its elevation to advanced country levels. We are proud of this participation and the qualified Saudis who are representing us here. STC has featured our technological, advanced capabilities and we consider it an asset for the promising future of digital telecommunications.” With respect to the ICT’s role in Vision 2030, Dr. Al-Rwais said: “This important Vision encompasses vital initiatives for this era. The most important of which is the broadband initiative, which will make an unprecedented step in meeting the needs of the society and government entities. Without broadband and embracing digital transformation, we will not be able to keep abreast with the ICT developments and bring about e-Helath and smart cities. The Ministry of Communications and Information Technology and CITC are working relentlessly to carry out this initiative, and phase one of the wireless broadband project has already begun and expected to be unveiled in two weeks.”
