LibanCell bids for Iraqi mobile license
IrakCell, a consortium of partners including LibanCell and the Amira, Maymana and Shamara Groups, have announced their submission of a bid to install and operate cellular phone services to the Coalition Provisional Authority (CPA).
"What makes our bid more acceptable to the people of Iraq is the investment support of three significant Iraqi business groups who hold the long-term interest of the future of this country and its people," said chairman of the Shamara Group, Ali Shamara. The consortium additionally enjoys the support of the thousands in the Iraqi-American community as it has enlisted as a shareholder the Amira Group, a member of the Iraqi-American Chamber of Commerce.
IrakCell is partnering with LibanCell and other worldwide leaders in cellular technology and services, some of which have already begun building a strong presence in Iraq. — (menareport.com)
