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.

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.
