Lucent Technologies announced it will sponsor the International Conference and Exhibition for Organizational Development (ICOD), a forum for the worlds of e-commerce, government and academia, being held in Bahrain this week.

Former US President George Bush is the keynote speaker at ICOD, which will be held under the patronage of His Highness Shaikh Khalifa bin Salman Al-Khalifa, Prime Minister of Bahrain, and chaired by His Excellency Abdulnabi Al Shoala, Minister of Labour and Social Affairs.

The event was established to influence how organizations will think, adapt and develop in the future. More than 1,000 senior figures from government, business and the academic world are expected to attend.

Fernand Hollevoet, Regional Director for Lucents Middle East and Africa (MEA) region said ICOD comes at just the right time to offer senior decision makers from both private and public sectors an appropriate forum at which to debate issues of global significance against a backdrop of continuing change.
