Bahrain TRA holds open forum on work plan

MANAMA, May 22, 2022

The Telecommunications Regulatory Authority of Bahrain (TRA) held an open forum to discuss TRA's 2022-2023 draft work plan.
The forum, at the TRA headquarters in the Seef District, provided stakeholders a platform to share their thoughts on the plan.
The draft workplan was published on April 24 and it includes the TRA's work streams with the intention of achieving objectives based on four key themes. Specifically, the TRA aims to meet the government policy outlined in the 5th National Telecom Plan, to ensure network security and resilience, to provide a reliable broadband service for all, and to ensure consumer empowerment and protection, a statement said.
Among those attending were representatives of the telecommunications industry, from the Ministry of Transportation and Telecommunications, as well as consumer advocacy organisations.
Philip Marnick, General Director of the Telecommunications Authority, said: “We are pleased that so many people attended our first TRA Open Forum.  It enabled stakeholders, especially consumers, an opportunity to share their ideas and help shape our work. At the end of the day, the work we do here is for the people of Bahrain, so talking to one another helps us serve our community better.” 
Marnick added: “We expect to hold more open forums on future draft publications, so that we can remain in touch and engage with all our stakeholders.” – TradeArabia News Service
