The Communication and Information Technology Regulatory Authority (CITRA), which is responsible for the country’s IT sector and technology adoption in the government, has welcomed the launch of the new AWS Middle East Region in Bahrain as an important step in the security of cloud computing.
Salem Muthib Al-Athainah, Chairman and CEO of CITRA, said: “We welcome the launch of the new AWS Middle East Region as an important step in bringing reliable and secure cloud computing technologies closer to end-users in the Middle East. This launch underlines the important location of the Middle East as a centre to the global data movement worldwide.
“The presence of the AWS Middle East Region opens up new prospects for companies and government organisations to serve customers in the region, contributing to the enhancement of infrastructure, digitisation, connectivity and customer experience.
“Our significant work with AWS supports CITRA’s strategy of transforming Kuwait into a regional ICT hub, and the digitisation of the Kuwaiti economy, and we look forward to continue to build on that while leveraging the new AWS Middle East Region in Bahrain.”
