I had the opportunity to attend one of the major events in the ICT Industry of Bahrain. A great line of speakers presented quite a wide range of topics. As the last session goes along and I type this post; it amazes me how technology keeps transforming our everyday lives.

Without a reality check on the critical infrastructure of nations and the issues associated with each change; I would say the Gulf Countries are trying to stay ahead of the curve if not on the cutting edge of innovation.

Its great to see the Telco’s (Batelco & VIVA) coming out and playing their roles in supprot of the industry along with do develop #FinTech solution in partnership with the local players.

Quite a lot of presentations from Huawei shows their interest in the region and the country Bahrain in particular.

While a big round of applause for H.E. Eng. Kamal bin Ahmed Mohamed the Transport and Telecommunication Minister on making such an effort for the industry.

The Accelerator C5 pulled out a great panel discussion on the first day with a couple of successful implementations of the services provided by Amazon; IPIFI , Mannai Tech , Gulf CX and Tamkeen was around to support the industry as always.

Hope to see more changes to the smart Grid in Bahrain as mentioned by Mr. Hani Al Najjar along with the swift roll-out of 5G leading to true smart cities.

Great overall event,
Arsalan
