Introducing mobile number portability is very encouraging. The CEO level was very important in terms of how it highlighted the importance of being a differentiator at the brand’s level. Another important debate was how we should not perceive new technologies as threats, but rather make the best use of them to serve the ecosystem as a whole,”

Our main participation is to share with the rest of the industry players in the Arab world, and especially in the Middle East, all the trends that are happening in the industry now, and how this is really impacting our end users, enterprise customers, and governments.
