He thanked His Highness the Amir for the confidence he has shown in once again selecting him to be a member of the jury, stressing the importance of continuing the process of development in Arab countries, and harnessing and advancing information technology in serving Arab citizens.

Al-Qaed pointed out that the award has become an opportunity for Arab countries to become acquainted with the different technologies offered by the contestants, which, in line with the aspirations and vision of the award, have shown continued ingenuity and innovation every year. He added that the award, with its contribution to digital and technical fields, serves as an incentive to encourage excellence and creativity in the transition towards developed digital societies in the Arab World.
