Affno e-Government showcased at GITEX

Affno has showcased its e-Government expertise at the recently concluded GITEX TECHNOLOGY WEEK held at the Dubai World Trade Centre. The exhibition opened by Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, UAE Vice President, Prime Minister and Ruler of Dubai drew more than 130,000 visitors and 3,300 companies from 83 countries.

Mr. Suren Kannangara (right, back to camera) and another Affno official explain to a visitor.

Afno said in a statement that a special feature at this year's event was providing one of the most comprehensive updates on major e-Government projects and initiatives from across the GCC region. The Ministry of Justice, the Prime Minister's Office, and the Ministry of Interior Naturalisation and Residency Administration – Dubai, all participated for the first time.

Suren Kannangara CEO of Affno noted that, “It is very easy to get diluted in the hive of activity and merge into the background in an exhibition such as GITEX which is dominated by all the global giants in the IT field. Affno despite its modest presence at GITEX made a significant impact among e-Government officials in the Middle East and North African region. Our unique suite of products for e-Government applications plus our extensive track record in e-Government deployments were keys to attracting interest”.
