GOVTEC 2006 - eGovernment in the Middle East: Vision, new initiatives and opportunities

Vice Chairman of the Conservative Technology Forum and Zentelligence Research, Managing Director, Dr Simon Moores has been invited to keynote the GOVTEC 2006 - eGovernment in the Middle East conference from 13th-15th February 2006, at the Bahrain Convention and Exhibition Centre, Kingdom of Bahrain.

A respected technology and eGovernment advisor to both the British and Arab governments, Dr Moores, commented: “I’m delighted to be asked to both speak at and assist in the chairing of this important conference on Middle-eastern electronic governance. The GCC states have made considerable advances since I last spoke at a regional conference in 2003 and in particular, I’m encouraged by the progress being made in Jordan, Lebanon and Syria towards the creation and delivery of both transactional and informational public services.”

GOVTEC is a high profile international conference designed to meet and address the issues, opportunities and developments of Middle East eGovernment.  The conference will cover the whole spectrum of the application of ICT in the government sector and deal with the broad range of issues, demands, opportunities and solutions confronting eGovernment decision makers in the Middle East.  This includes strategic planning and enterprise architecture, enterprise content management, knowledge management and collaboration, IT management, information security management and customer management. The aim of the conference is to provide the latest information, guidance and case study examples to senior IT managers in the government sector to help make the choice that will give them the best return whether they are seeking efficiencies, improving service delivery, increasing innovation or enabling different working practices.

GOVTEC will bring together ministers and senior officials responsible for eGovernment globally and in the Middle East. GOVTEC will feature the achievements and showcase examples of best practice in international eGovernment.  These government and industry visionaries will share their insights on how to enable the development of eGovernment in the Middle East.

Median Saleh

I mentioned in the last post, the 1981 expedition that took in Median Saleh, the ruined Nabatean city in Saudi Arabia


A temple carved from the rock from Petra's sister city.

By coincidence, one of the most important train stations on the Hejaz railway sat next to the ruins and when Lawrence of Arabia blew the line in 1917, the trains were trapped there and are still there today, gathering dust and with "Krupp" on the engine casings.

Below, you can see one of the fortified train stations that Lawrence attacked along the Hejaz railway between Damascus and Medina.

A Christmas Tale

It’s pitch blackness in places along the sea wall this evening and I'm momentarily startled by a small dog with orange flashing yuletide antlers along the way. I’m the only person crazy enough to be running and I know the route well enough to negotiate it in the dark, part of my Christmas exercise regime and a good way of relieving stress.

Why stress you might ask. After all, it is Christmas Day.

True but I’ve just spent over two hours assembling the giant Playmobil ‘Pony Farm’ set when most other fathers should be asleep in front of the television.



I was warned that the Playmobil ‘Pirate Ship’ had driven some fathers to drink or suicide and now I understand why. If your eyesight isn’t perfect or if you’ve had a few drinks with your Christmas lunch then it’s a challenge best left until Boxing day but not an option if you happen to have a nine year old daughter who wants it ready to take horses by tea time.

Perhaps I should stick to technology but then, the instruc…

Merlins over Thanet

Marooned, temporarily at Manston this afternoon are the Merlins over Malta team on the way to the Mediterranean for a display to mark the historic Second World War defence of the island.


Charlie Brown

Unfortunately, the weather over Thanet is appalling this afternoon and the Spitfire and Hurricane can’t get airborne again until it clears, so the celebrity Battle of Britain aircraft pilots, Charlie Brown, Clive Denny and their team-mates are contemplating an evening among the fleshpots of Margate.

I’m rather hoping the weather it will clear through though as they have to get to Jersey before dusk if possible and I have to take some photos of the Spitfire and Hurricane for Pilot Magazine and I’ve always wanted a chance to get in either aircraft!

An Interview with Charlie Brown

They just got off, squadron scramble or what? They were ready and gone in ten minutes towards the nearest patch of blue sky!
