H.E. Hamad Obaid Al Mansouri has been appointed director general of the Telecommunications Regulatory Authority (TRA) of the UAE. H.E. Sheikh Khalifa Bin Zayed Al Nahyan, UAE President, has issued a Federal Decree no. 14 of 2015 for his appointment.

H.E. Hamad Obaid Al Mansouri has been the director general of the UAE mGovernment since April 2014 and as the deputy director general of Information and e-Government from May 2013 to April 2014. Al Mansouri holds a Master’s degree in Multimedia (Computer Science) from Middlesex University.

H.E. Al Mansouri has also held various positions, some of which he still resumes now, including his role as a technical consultant in many government entities and institutions. He has also played an important role in the Integration process between the different electronic systems and empowered many of the UAE’s national talents, by providing them with the appropriate opportunity to work in the ICT field.

H.E. Mohammed Ahmed Al Qamzi, chairman of TRA, has praised the role played by H.E. Mohamed Nasser Al Ghanim, former TRA director general, in developing not only the TRA but also the overall UAE ICT sector.

"I stress that the continued presence of Al Ghanim highly contributes to the mission and role of the TRA in the upcoming phase, which will witness great challenges. Al Ghanim’s remarkable contributions were invaluable not only to the progress of the TRA, but also in the UAE’s journey to advancement,” Al Qamzi said.

"The appointment of H.E. Hamad Obaid Al Mansouri as Director General of TRA will add great value, especially in this critical phase, due to his broad and varied expertise and professional experience, particularly in developing important national initiatives that the authority is working towards implementing. All of which, to develop the UAE telecommunications sector and reinforce the concepts of the mGovernment Initiative launched by His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, UAE Vice President, Prime Minister and Ruler of Dubai,” Al Qamzi added.
