In order to enhance Information Communications and Technology (ICT) business promotion in the Middle East, and provide Taiwanese companies with the latest global information, the Institute for Information Industry (III) will host an online "Infinite Middle East Business Opportunities Webinar" on 7th October, 2020 (Wednesday) at 9:30 a.m. ~ 11:00 a.m. (Middle East GMT+3)/ 2:30 p.m. ~ 4:00 p.m. (Taiwan GMT+8), inviting local experts, Dr. Al-Adwan, Director from Jordan Ministry of Digital Economy and Entrepreneurship, and Ms. Al-Kuwari, TASMU Digital Valley Lead from Qatar Ministry of Transport and Communications, to give first-hand briefings on the business environment and opportunities.


The Middle East region has a population of approximately 578 million people, with underlying ICT needs to meet national goals, implement policies and host global events (e.g., 2022 FIFA World Cup). It may stimulate demand for cross-industry, enterprise transformations, digitalization of high-tech services, coupled with oil based funds and economic state programs which may offer cooperation opportunities for Taiwanese companies to participate in.


In 2014, in partnership with the Kuwait Institute for Scientific Research (KISR), III established the KILO Office (KISR-III Liaison Office) as a platform for Taiwan to promote the export of ICT hardware and software solutions and services to serve the GCC and regional markets. We sincerely invite all interested guests to join us in this webinar and explore the blue ocean of Middle East business opportunities.
