Oman 2020 - ICT

ICT was identified by the government as a key component of the sultanate’s long-term economic development strategy, Vision 2040, which calls for enhancing national technical capabilities, constructing vital ICT infrastructure and improving governance through the use of e-services. A government organisational shake-up has renewed focus on the sector, as authorities work to integrate technology such as artificial intelligence and internet of things applications into everyday life. The mobile segment is set to see the entrance of a third operator, while efforts to boost rural and urban high-speed internet access, upskill the workforce and provide support to local ICT start-ups remains a focus as Oman prepares for the next stage of digital transformation. This chapter contains an interview with Talal Al Mamari, CEO, Omantel.
