Singapore, 26 April 2010 | For Immediate Release
In a sign of warm relations following the extension of a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) between the Infocomm Development Authority of Singapore (IDA) and the Information Technology Authority of Oman (ITA) in October last year, IDA will be leading a delegation of Singapore infocomm companies to participate in COMEX 2010, scheduled to take place from 26 to 30 April in Muscat, Oman.
Exhibiting under the Infocomm Singapore banner, this is the first time that IDA is leading a contingent to showcase at Oman. Building on their experience and capabilities in developing and implementing infocomm solutions both in Singapore and abroad, the Singapore contingent will showcase their innovative offerings in e-Government solutions.
"Singapore infocomm companies have gained much experience in the development and implementation of a wide range of infocomm projects within the Singapore government and various economic sectors over the years," said Mr Shaik Umar, IDA's Centre Director for Middle East. "They are well-placed to contribute and value-add to the region with their innovative solutions and capabilities. We hope our presence at COMEX 2010 will further generate awareness about Singapore companies and provide them with further opportunities in Oman and the region."
Besides the showcase at COMEX 2010, IDA will also be leading the sharing of Singapore experience at the COMEX CIO Forum - Government Focus Session on 28 April. IDA will be presenting Singapore's perspective of leveraging Public-Private Partnership to create and deliver services at best value for long term sustainability and the development of a vibrant infocomm industry. As implementation partners in Singapore, the Infocomm Singapore companies will share their case studies, strategies and experiences in implementing e-Services in Singapore and around the world.
Participation at COMEX 2010 underscores IDA's strong working relationships with governments and related organisations in the Sultanate of Oman and the other GCC states, as well as its commitment to help facilitate collaboration and exchanges between Singapore and the Middle East region. Since its first point of presence in the region was set up in 2007, IDA has facilitated several Singapore business and official delegations to the region, and hosted Middle East official delegations to Singapore.
