By sharing knowledge and examining new trends at this symposium, we will be able to deliver the latest innovations to customers across our regional footprint. This is also part of our drive to support the creation of sophisticated local mobile applications and content, fostering the local developer ecosystem to accelerate growth of the mobile content industry in the Middle East region.”
