Also announced at Mobile World Congress, the Government Excellence Awards focus on governments that have fostered the true spirit of digitalisation in their national agenda. The 2018 winners are:
Government Leadership Award
Government of the Republic of Estonia
The GSMA’s Government Leadership Award recognises world-class leadership in the establishment of sound telecommunications regulatory policies, based on clear principles that encourage private investment, such as transparency, free and fair competition, and regulatory independence. Estonia’s application was highly regarded by the entire judging panel. Of note were the policy approaches adopted by the Estonian government to support the deployment of mobile services, particularly in relation the provision of fibre backhaul in rural areas and the strong promotion and rapid development of 5G services.
Estonia has made excellent progress towards the digital transformation of its government services, based upon a robust digital identity for all citizens. Further, the panel was impressed by the focus on encouraging the take-up of mobile services in both the private and public sectors, particularly the fact that 95 per cent of government e-services are available through a mobile ID.
Chairman’s Award for Government Innovation in an Emerging Market
Telecommunications Regulatory Commission – Jordan
This award recognises the Telecommunications Regulatory Commission’s (TRC) willingness to engage positively with the mobile industry and its support for ideas to encourage continued and sustained investment in mobile broadband networks.

With the support of the TRC, Jordan has made significant progress in the development of digital government services, such as e-health, e-education, tax and municipal services, among others.

Inside Secure to Provide Secure Provisioning Solutions to NationalChip18.6.2018 15:35 | Pressemelding
Regulatory News: Inside Secure (Paris:INSD), at the heart of security solutions for mobile and connected devices, announced it entered into an agreement with Hangzhou NationalChip Science and Technology Co., Ltd, a leading innovator and developer of SoCs (system-on-chip), to use Inside Secure’s Secure Provisioning Solution to build robust security into its products during the chip manufacturing process. Secure provisioning is recognized as a crucial, foundational security building block across diverse markets including automotive, entertainment, IoT, mobile and TV. Securing devices or end products can be worthless if their identities and cryptographic keys have been compromised during manufacturing. Widely-publicized attacks have targeted provisioning because they can affect large numbers of devices and are difficult to detect. Chipmakers and device manufacturers see the potential for new revenue sources by offering secure provisioning to their customers, leveraging technology solution

Inteva Products Receives Top Innovation Award for Revolutionary Stitching Process18.6.2018 13:31 | Pressemelding
Inteva Products, LLC, a leading global Tier One automotive supplier of engineered components and systems, received the top prize in the 2018 Innovation Awards presented by the European Association of Automotive Suppliers (CLEPA) at The Hague, Netherlands, on June 13. Inteva was recognized for its new real-time scanning process for the robotic stitching of automotive interiors. This innovative technology will be used on instrument panels for the 2019 Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra pickup trucks.

The advancement reduces the average cycle time of a stitched surface by approximately 20-30%. The 2018 CLEPA Innovation Awards, organized in cooperation with Deloitte, celebrate automotive excellence
