KPMG sponsors top ICT event in Bahrain

MANAMA, January 20, 2020

KPMG, a leading audit, tax and advisory firm, is sponsoring MEET ICT & BITEX 2020, a leading ICT event in Bahrain taking place from March 24 to 26 at the Gulf Convention Centre.

The event is being held under the patronage of Kamal bin Ahmed Mohammed, Minister of Transportation and Telecommunications.

KPMG has been providing businesses across all sectors a suite of locally supported audit, tax and advisory services. Over the years, the company has strengthened their capabilities considerably, cultivated lasting trust and relationships across the business ecosystem, while staying true to their strategic direction and the vision to make a real difference.

KPMG’s managing partner Jamal Fakhro commented on the 10th edition of the prestigious event: “In the past years, this event has allowed many organizations and individuals to align their objectives to promote and secure a positive digital economy.”

“The financial services sector in Bahrain has an unprecedented opportunity in today’s connected global marketplace but they also face key challenges with the increasing regulations and technology disruption.

“We also work closely with the national government, to help raise service delivery efficiencies and revenues, while enhancing the quality of public services. As the boundaries between public and private sectors become more fluid, new solutions - and new risks - are emerging. KPMG helps turn challenges into opportunities by working with clients across the public sector, including the Technology sector amongst others,” Fakhro added.

Ubaydli Ubaydli, chairman of BTECH stated: “Supporting initiatives like MEET ICT & BITEX aims to increase the contribution of technology companies in the private and public sector, as well as encourage them to further improve the rendering of their services and innovations. We are pleased to have KPMG as our Bronze Sponsor for the event.”
“The digital economy is taking shape and undermining conventional notions about how businesses are structured; how firms interact; and how consumers obtain services, information, and goods, which is why, we should take the rightful measure in understanding and securing the future of Bahrain’s economy.

“It has been our passion of contributing to the ICT industry in Bahrain. More so, to understand the current situation of our economy and how Digital Transformation has had an impact on it. We know that the sponsorship and alliance with KPMG will help us accomplish a positive change to our society,” he added. – TradeArabia News Service
