The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia believes that to embrace ICTs constitute a decisive step for advancement and development of the economic, social and cultural potential of the States. The Saudi Arabia, realizing the importance of the telecommunications and information sector has been modernized in the last five years, the telecommunications network extending also this national plan to the remotest rural areas. The actual gap between countries can be bridged by joining efforts to ensure universal access to ICTs in order to establish an information society based on equality of opportunities. The two documents containing the Declaration of Principles and the Plan of Action are very important for the consistence of an information society, where everyone could share benefits and where the promotion of contact and dialogue among nations could be implemented. Cultural identity, educational and linguistic diversity must be respected.

Saudi Arabia proposes the establishment of clear mechanisms to regulate the “new society” in order to minimize or even to eliminate its negative aspects and the creation of an international law to ensure that the Internet is being used on an equitable and transparent manner. The country wishes to cooperate to the achievement of the WSIS' goals.
