(MENAFN - Khaleej Times) ABUDHABI — High level delegations of influential Information Communiction Technology (ICT) figures from the Arab world are currently preparing for participation in the Governmental Technology — GT- Summit and Exhibition — which will be held from November19-21.

Confirmed delegations at GT Summit represent Arab government officials from Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Qatar, Bahrain, Oman, Egypt, Jordan, Syria, Morocco, Yemen, Muritania in addition to the UAE.

Amongst a line-up of speakers, Dr. Yasar Jarrar, the Executive Dean of Dubai School of Governmental and Strategy Advisor at the Executive

Office of Dubai, commented that there have been several successful experiences in e-government development in the Arab region " Dubai is the most obvious example" despite of the low level of success in e-government projects globally.

He pointed out that the UNDESA estimated that 60 per cent of global e-government projects have failed completely or partially in 2003 and the World Bank estimated 85 per cent failure in 2004.

Jarrar said that market research companies estimates that the government IT spending in the Arab countries is between 1 and 2 billion; but some Arab governments suffer from a productivity paradox, where more spending on IT does not necessarily lead to higher productivity, efficiency or eventually citizens satisfaction.
