Dubai eGovernment to promote services at GITEX 2010

Posted by Neil King

Dubai eGovernment has revealed that its stand at the 30th edition of GITEX Technology Week will be three times bigger than the one it occupied at last year's event.

The move comes as Dubai eGovernment looks to raise awareness about the e-services on offer to residents and businesses in the emirate.

GITEX 2010, which will be held between October 17th to 21st, offers participants the chance to exchange experiences and explore the latest IT innovations and solutions.

Ahmed Bin Humaidan, director-general of Dubai eGovernment, commented: "We will try to cater for the needs of our visitors at GITEX with the goal of improving the e-services in the emirate and enhancing the level of efficiency and excellence within different local government departments in line with our common goal of speeding up the transformation of Dubai into an integrated digital community."

He added that this was also in line with the vision of Dubai's ruler Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum to build a "knowledge-based economy" in the emirate.

Last week, it was reported that revenue collected through the Dubai eGovernment's ePay system rose 60 per cent in the first half of 2010 compared to the same period last year.
