Digital transformation is driving the nation’s move towards achieving all goals set under Oman Vision 2040 and is empowering creative individuals to set the tone for a competitive economy that creates a responsible digital government.

This should also pave way for the Sultanate’s ICT market, which is expected to grow to RO2.2 billion by 2024 from RO1.2 billion in 2019, and push for new levels of citizen engagement.

With youth accounting for 46.7 per cent of the community and innovation being paramount in the state apparatus’ shift to a modern, digital governance model, Oman offers strong grounds for advances towards the fourth industrial revolution (4IR).

This comes on the heels of the Ministry of Transport, Communications and Information Technology’s bold move to implement AI systems across its governing units.

The Digital Transformation & Innovation Awards 2022 also presented accolades to commemorate exceptional organizations and individuals in the sector.
