Business Sweden is organizing a telecom B2B match-making event in Saudi Arabia. Swedish ICT companies will get the opportunity to meet key stakeholders and decision-makers from the two largest telecom operators in the Kingdom, Saudi Telecom Company (STC) and Etisalat Etihad (Mobily).
Saudi Arabia hosts the biggest Telecom market in the MENA region
Saudi Arabia’s total mobile subscriber base reached an estimated 53.7 million at the end of 2011, representing a mobile penetration rate of 203% - the highest in the Middle East Northern Africa (MENA) region.
The match making event - a door-opener for your company
