His Highness the Amir of Kuwait, Shaikh Sabah Al-Ahmad Al-Jaber Al-Sabah honored Information & eGovernment Authority (iGA) Chief Executive Mohammed Ali Al-Qaed at Bayan Palace for his role as a member of the jury of the 19th Shaikh Salem Al-Ali Al-Sabah Informatics Award.

Al-Qaed expressed his pride in receiving this honor, adding that His Highness the Amir’s patronage of the Prize since 2006 had given it weight and importance that extends across the Arab World and internationally. 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.

AlQaed, representing the Kingdom of Bahrain, is among a nine-member jury from eight Arab countries, the participation of whom gives the award a degree of independence and transparency. The jury evaluated the content and design of the entries, as well as their abilities to interact well with systems in terms of their coverage, quality and flexibility. Ten Arab technical projects were selected as winners this year.
