Today, we are honored to host the 39th meeting as part of our commitment to bring the mobile ecosystem together from various representatives from the telecom sector aimed at adding value to our Arab region".

Fakhroo added "The region is a diverse and exciting market. The meeting always provides an excellent forum for the telecom industry in the Arab world to come together, share ideas and debate the future of mobile communications in the region. The GSMAW will provide valuable insight into how telecoms organizations can react and adapt to the future challenges and opportunities this changing market will carry along the way."

Wataniya's support and participation in regional events is acknowledged and appreciated. In this meeting, experts from the Arab operators and the GSM Association will speak and participate in panel discussions". The GSMAW is one of the GSM Association's six Regional Interest Groups (RIGs) in which the mobile industry can address issues relevant to particular geographies.
