Batelco, Bahrain’s leading digital solutions provider has announced its Platinum Sponsorship for the Bahrain Sustainable Smart Cities Forum 2017 which will take place on September 17 and 18 at the Ramee Grand Hotel.

The event, which is under the patronage of the Minister of Works, Municipalities Affairs & Urban Planning, Eng. Essam bin Abdulla Khalaf, will bring together individuals and organisations that are part of the changing landscape of Bahrain as it evolves its digital and ICT capabilities.

Over the course of the 2-day event a number of experts from leading organisations, including Batelco, will give presentations on the latest technologies which are playing a key role in streamlining the day to day running of businesses across all sectors in Bahrain.

Batelco Bahrain CEO Eng. Muna Al Hashemi said that the development and implementation of smart city solutions demands the close participation of all organisations, but particularly the ICT and communications sectors.

“From Batelco’s side, we are making great strides to become a fully Integrated Digital Services Provider in order to remain viable in this digital world and contribute to the growing digital economy. Among our areas of focus are financial digital services.”
