Seef District, Kingdom of Bahrain: The Telecommunications Regulatory Authority (TRA) has participated in the 17th annual meeting of Arab Regulatory Network (AREGNET) which was held during the period from 24 – 26 September 2019 in Tunisia.

TRA Bahrain delegation was headed by Shaikh Nasser Bin Mohamed Al Khalifa, Acting General Director of TRA, who gave a welcome note indicating the major achievements of AREGENET during the chairmanship of TRA Bahrain. Shaikh Nasser also added that “We live in a world of rapidly changing technology, particularly in telecom. How we communicate has made leaps and bounds since the days where all we had were voice calls. This means we have opportunities that are exploitable industry-wide. We can now look forward to advancements in technology like Artificial Intelligence, Internet of Things, Digital Currencies and 5G mobile networks which are all important topics of focus for all of us in light of major technological changes occuring around us”.

On the last day of the meeting, the general assembly meeting was held during which TRA Bahrain as chair of the current round handed over the chairmanship to the National Regulatory Authority for Telecommunications of Tunisia. The meeting was attended by representatives from Arab Regulators who presented the projects related to the sector. TRA Bahrain also chaired the expert group meeting, during which regulators from all the Arab region came together to discuss and review the updates of various joint projects and working groups.

TRA Bahrain hosted a series of workshops and meetings as part of its activities in AREGNET during April 2019. The outcome of the working group meetings was presented and very welcomed by AREGENET members. The meeting also shed light on new projects which will be addressed during the coming round including topics like the economic effects of over-the-top (OTT) application, emergency communications in the Arab region, utilization of Artificial Intelligence (AI) in the telecommunications and ICT sectors and the new generation of mobile network (5G).
