TRA holds Open Forum on its work plan

The Telecommunications Regulatory Authority (TRA) today held an Open Forum to provide stakeholders with a platform to share their thoughts on the TRA’s 2022-2023 draft work plan.

The draft work plan was published on the 24th of April, 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.

Among those attending were representatives of the telecommunications industry, from the Ministry of Transportation and Telecommunications, as well as consumer advocacy organizations.

TRA Director-General, Philip Marnick, commented on the event, saying, “We were pleased so many 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.” WHQ
