Under the leadership of HM King Hamad bin Isa Al Khalifa, Bahrain set a strategic decision to transform the government services by establishing the Supreme Committee for Information and Communication Technology to implement directives specifically related to e-government and development of the information and communications technology.

Twenty-five years later, major advancements in ICT has transformed Bahrain into a “digitally advanced country,” a leader in the use of technology and a “top information and communications hub” in the region today.
