The scope also covers exploring opportunities to create the favourable conditions to promote electronic signature validation through mutual cooperation. Speaking on the MoU, Dr Al Ruzaiqi said: "The Electronic Transactions Law of the country through the Royal Decree has given the responsibility to establish a Digital Certification System to ITA. Through this MoU, we would like to have closer cooperation with the authorities involved in the Tunisian experience, who are the pioneers of such implementation in the Arab region. Establishment of a Digital Certification System is a very important component of activating the transactional electronic services in Oman and making them legally valid both for the public and private sectors. We intend to have two-day workshops with Tunisian experts, today and tomorrow, to share their experience and expertise in the establishment of a framework to issue and manage digital signatures."
