MANAMA, 10th October, 2016 (WAM) — A total of 33 Bahraini exhibitors will be participating at the Bahraini national pavilion for GITEX 2016 which will be held in Dubai from next Sunday, according to Work Smart, the event-management company in cooperation with The Bahrain Technology Companies Society.

Bahrain News Agency, BNA, quoted Ahmed Al-Hujairi, CEO of Work Smart, as saying that the main goal since the start of Bahraini participation in GITEX was to promote Bahraini presence in the international forum for information technology manufacturers around the world.

“Today, after 10 years of active participation, our goals became clearer and bigger. We aim to strengthen the “ICT” industry in Bahrain, raising the share of Bahraini companies from 6% to 10% in the IT investments markets in the Arabian Gulf which has reached around US$30 billion,” added Mr. Al-Hujairi.
