About Qatar

For more than a decade now, Qatar’s investments in state-of-the-art ICT infrastructure, skills development and e-government have created a positive impact on all sectors in the country. The ICT investments are transforming businesses of all kinds. Qatar’s National Vision is to become an even more flourishing modern country by 2030, capable of continuous development that will secure respectable living conditions for generations to come. The greatest challenge is to preserve Qatar’s heritage and traditions, especially in a challenging world where globalisation and worldwide communication threaten to dominate.

Cross-border 104

Global CIO Forum is all set to take the concept of cross-border panel discussion several notches higher with the Cross-border 104 initiative. As a part of the 2020 edition of the World CIO 200 Summit, as also to bring out the flavour of 26 participating countries further, Global CIO Forum will be conducting a cross-border panel discussion in all the 26 countries.

A panel of 4 technology decision-makers from 4 countries will put forward their opinions and outlook on how technology will be revisited in 2021, and how the respective countries are taking strides towards a better future.

Global CIO Forum is extending an invitation to all participants to be a part of the Cross-border 104, an industry-first initiative which will see 104 CIOs in attendance. The format will be:

  • 1 CIO from host country + 3 CIOs from other participating countries
  • This to be repeated in all 26 countries
  • This will result in 26 cross-border panels and a total of 104 participating CIOs
