Recognizing the importance of information in today’s knowledge-based society driven by information technology and with the need to create proper institutional and legal framework for a sound and holistic development of the information and communication technology (ICT) sectors in the Kingdom, the Royal Government created the Ministry of Information and Communications in 2003 through bifurcation of the erstwhile Ministry of Communications with the aim to tap the potential of rapid change in the field of information and communications technology (ICT) and cater to the policy and regulatory needs of the information, communications and media sector in the country.
In 2003 Ministry of Communication was bifurcated to Ministry of Information and Communication and Ministry of Works and Human Settlement.
