The UAE's Telecommunications Regulatory Authority has signed an agreement with the Ministry of Infrastructure Development to launch its Government Services Bus (GSB) project that aids smooth exchange of data among government entities.

It is in line with the UAE government's aim to establish an integrated platform as per the vision of the leadership to offer the highest standards of digital security and safety to the consumers, they added.

The GSB enhances the efficiency of the digital government services and ensures an alignment among all government agencies, by facilitating easy access to multi-source data, remarked Engineer Abdullah bin Mohammed Belhaif Al Nuaimi, Minister of Infrastructure Development.
 
“This will contribute in achieving the aspirations of the UAE government and happiness of customers which is an important part of the strategic plans of the Ministry. It has been the endeavor of the Ministry to exchange information and follow the best global practices to benefit from them and enable the establishment of efficient and modern infrastructure with an aim of becoming the best country in the world by 2021 and facilitating the procedures to further save the time and the efforts for the ease of the customers,” he added.
