In the preparedness of digital systems, Saudi Arabia has ranked fourth globally and second among the G20 members, according to a report released today by the International Telecommunication Union (ITU), which is a specialized agency of the United Nations responsible for all matters related to information and communication technologies.
The Kingdom’s new global achievement was the result of the endless support of the Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques King Salman and Crown Prince and Prime Minister Mohammed Bin Salman, said Dr. Mohammed Al Tamimi, Governor of the Communications and Information Technology Commission (CITC).
Also, the Saudi Vision 2030 has laid down the foundations of a strong and efficient telecommunications and information technology sector that led to the development of an ambitious strategy for digital transformation in line with global trends, explained Al Tamimi.
He also said that including the establishment of the national academy for digital systems, as a strategic step towards attracting investments and accelerating the digital transformation endeavour, the CITC has launched several initiatives to upgrade the telecommunications and IT sector to the highest levels.
Indicating that the ITU report has highlighted several challenges facing regulating agencies, including primarily monitoring competence and sustainable growth, CITC governor added that the Commission has enhanced the Kingdom’s competitiveness by focusing on cooperative regulating and including all stakeholders in its enterprises.
