There is no doubt that the foundation of partnership between the eGovernment Authority and Central Informatics Organization has led to implementing numerous joint national projects – benefiting a large segment of society individuals, public and private institutions. With the issuance of the Royal Decree No. 69 in 2015 concerning the merge, this journey was progressed to advanced levels and backed by joint efforts accompanied by increasing the pace of productivity with the purpose of improving efficiency to achieve national strategies and support the government direction in reducing expenditures, in light of dealing with the economic challenges without any effect on the accomplishments and key processes, which requires finding the creation of innovative solutions and taking advantage of the available resources as well as converting challenges to opportunities.

Thanks to the support and follow-up of the Interior Minister His Excellency Lieutenant-General Shaikh Rashid bin Abdullah AlKhalifa and his continuous guidance to increase the joint efforts and system developments by adopting the latest trends in the field. The authority has once again renewed its national duty of implementing the Government Action Plan by reshaping its national strategic role - following the merge process – and supporting government entities to enhance the national progress.
