ICT has become a marker of any country or territory’s economic performance. And clearly, sustainable development will largely depend in any nation on the successful implementation of ICT in all layers of the society and of the economic fabric. The future will be completely dependent on each country’s ability to make the best of ICT in the globalized world.Bahrain Technology Companies Society (BTECH) was established in 2012 with the objective to raise the awareness on the contribution of Information and Communication Technology to the economy of Bahrain. As I look at those few years since BTECH was established, I am extremely proud of what we have accomplished and even more excited looking forward to an equally promising future. It is satisfying to see how much the ICT industry has contributed to Bahrain’s national economy and development.
As we strive to raise to this endless challenge and to continuously evolve ICT companies in Bahrain to worldwide standards, I want to encourage all ICT-related companies, including hardware and software setups, web and internet initiatives, and very importantly Telco’s, to continuously support the society at large.
We need to build strong relationships not only among ourselves but also with the different national stakeholders, be they in government, in business or in education, to further achieve our goal. To all our members, thank you for your continued commitment to BTECH and its objectives. These achievements would not be possible without your support.
