The Ministry of Transport and Communications (MoTC) has today launched ‘Tawasol’ (https://tawasol.gov.qa/) – a portal designed for secure electronic collaboration between government employees – on the sidelines of Qatar IT Conference and Exhibition (QITCOM 2019) being held under the theme “Safe, Smart Cities”.

Tawasol will offer a workspace where staff can set up audio and video meetings, chat, perform panel discussions, and distribute tasks. The portal will also act as a knowledge sharing center, whereby staff will have access to essential documents related to their roles, projects or domains, trainings manuals. The platform will enable staff to manage their meetings, upload and share documents, and calendars. Additionally, it will provide employees with the latest news, related laws and policies, guidance, and services.

In line with Qatar Digital Government 2020 Strategy, Through Tawasol, we aim to empower government employees to share information, collaborate, and create knowledge centers. Tawasol has been designed to increase efficiency in productivity and reduce overall costs. It will also help governments achieve organizational excellence and improve corporate governance.
