UAE, Morocco and Lebanon telcom ministers to partake in WCIT at Athens
The world’s leading international information and communication technology (ICT) specialists will converge to Greece next week for the 14th edition of the biennial World Congress on Information Technology (WCIT) to be held in Athens between May 19th and 21st.
For over 25 years, eminent academics, researchers, corporate executives and policy makers from all over the world have participated in this event and have established a vehicle with which new ideas and applications are explored and have led to decisions that shape the future of the ICT world.
One of this year’s major topics will be the IT industry’s vision for the future of Digital Home. “The concept of Digital Home will shape our lives and challenge our business environment,” said Michel Fromont, President and CEO of NEC Computers International, who will deliver a key-note speech on the second day of the Congress.
“Digital Home solutions are likely to dominate the sector in the coming years as the PC rapidly becomes the platform of choice for a wide range of popular digital activities such as photography, gaming, online movies and the Internet,” Fromont said.
Over 2,000 delegates from all over the world are expected to be attending the event. The UAE’s Minister of Communications Mr. Ahmed Humaid Al-Tayer, has already confirmed his participation at the event. Other Middle East delegates include Jean Louis Cardahi, Minister of Telecommunications of Lebanon and Mr. Rachid Talbi El Alami, the Moroccan Minister of Industry, Commerce & Telecommunications.
