Four Bahraini institutions win top global IT excellence awards

MANAMA, December 4, 2021

Four major Bahraini organizations - e-Government Authority, the Tender Board, Atyaf Company, and the "Ra'edat" platform - have won the World Alliance for Information Technology and Services (Witsa) awards for excellence in technology. 
Founded in 1978, Witsa is a leading association of members of the ICT industry associations, comprising more than 80 countries around the world.
Members of this union represent more than 90 per cent of the information technology market and global communications and the ITU Awards have been one of its most popular programs for more than 20 years.
This Bahraini achievement brings a new global gain, which the Bahraini IT industry adds to its record of achievements in this pioneering industry. At the same time, it confirms the competitiveness of the products of this Bahraini industry, said the statement from Bahrain Society for Technology Companies (Btech) which nominated these entities for the award. 
All of this was based on the decision of a panel of international and distinguished arbitrators in the ICT industry who represent reputable international organizations, companies and competent government bodies.
Speaking on the occasion, BTECH Society President Ubaydli Ubaydli said: "What these Bahraini governmental institutions and those belonging to the private sector have achieved reveals their ability to enter the markets of this industry equipped with standard competitive capabilities on the international level and confirms the Bahraini market's ability to breed emerging institutions and perhaps small or medium ones that possess the leadership qualities that qualify them to compete in global competitions in a sector teeming with similar countries from countries that have come a long way in this field."
According to Ubaydli,  this win would also shed light on the extent of development strides made by the information and communication technology sector in Bahrain. 
"It benefits from four fundamental pillars: the well-established infrastructure of the information and communication network, the availability of competencies, the provision of the necessary appropriate legislation that regulates the local market, and the availability of qualified human cadres to innovate and provide products and services that keep pace with national interactions towards digital transformation and increase the private sector's contribution to the GDP as an authentic partner in the policy of diversifying sources of income," he added.-TradeArabia News Service
