Saudi Gazette reported that Mr Khalifa Al Shamsi, Chief Corporate Strategy and Governance Officer of Etisalat Group, at Leaders Summit 2019’ held by SAMENA Telecommunications Council, said that “5G infrastructure is set to become the nervous system of the ‘Digital Society’ and ‘Digital Economy’ with clear goals being set to deliver on the 5G promise by enabling boundless connectivity, deliver sustainable innovation, accelerate digital transformation and drive growth with new use cases.”

He brought to light the upcoming opportunities for operators with 5G, the chance for telcos and other stakeholders in the ecosystem to move beyond connectivity and collaborate across sectors such as logistics, smart cities, oil & gas, manufacturing, finance, transport, retail and health to explore new growth opportunities that deliver rich services that empowers societies.

He said “5G will bring the wealth of opportunities in social economic transformation, and this requires more than just ‘the right regulations in place’. Governments do play a key role in demand stimulation and transformation with viable policies but in addition to regulations and spectrum, there is a need to eliminate asymmetrical regulations and put policies that are still in play for some markets in the region. The telecom industry is taking the front seat in fuelling the 4th industrial revolution, by spearheading the launch of future networks and technologies, it is imperative that we rise to every challenge by working together as an industry to become an accelerator to drive innovation and development and most of all bridge the digital divide.”

The SAMENA Telecom Leaders’ Summit 2019, was held under the patronage of the UAE Telecommunication Regulatory Authority, focused on understanding the impact of 5G in boosting ICTs and enabling flexibility and enhancing capabilities of new digital services.
