Qatar 2020 - ICT

The year 2020 presents exciting prospects for the Qatari ICT sector. Vodafone and Ooredoo have committed to roll out 5G in all densely populated areas, along primary roads and motorways, and at venues associated with the 2022 FIFA World Cup by the end of 2020. In anticipation of this, stakeholders will be closely monitoring the opening of Lusail City. Investors will also be looking for further opportunities from the Smart Qatar Programme, also known as TASMU, after the Ministry of Transport and Communications awarded 11 multimillion-dollar contracts under the programme at the annual Qatar IT Conference and Exhibition in November 2019. The flagship project to develop the TASMU Central Platform was awarded to a consortium of firms, of which Oooredoo was the main partner. This chapter contains interviews with Mohammed Ali Al Mannai, President, Communications Regulatory Authority; and Ghada Philip El Rassi, Board Member, MEEZA.
