I also launched the strategic study for the implementation of an Integrated Management and Toll Information System based on three parties ERP around a strong security solution. Furthermore, I took up the challenge of the Digital Transformation of the sector by introducing new information technologies via mobile payment (USSD technology, Mdinar,...) and introduced API to dialogue with industrial systems for the management of toll traffic.

Then I entered the governmental life as an advisor in Digital Transformation of the Minister of Agriculture, Maritime Fishing and Water Resources and as a president of the Digital Transformation commission in the ministry, in order to put the foundation of a digital agriculture based on, among others, the use of drones, the auscultation of dams, the agricultural map, and other projects working on the digitalization of the agricultural sector.
