The Talal Abu-Ghazaleh Academy (TAG-Academy) and the GSMA have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) agreeing to collaborate on a range of mobile technology initiatives aiming to support capacity building in the Arab region. Both parties work closely together across a number of mutually beneficial areas to promote mobile technologies, including capacity building sessions, workshops and the sharing of best practices.

“Through this partnership, we will coordinate to maximize the benefits of mobile technology in social and economic development,” said Jawad Abbassi, Head of MENA, GSMA. “We look forward to working closely with TAG-Org and hope that this is the beginning of a productive partnership that delivers tangible benefits.”

HE Dr. Talal Abu-Ghazaleh said: "We are proud to partner with the GSMA in such a challenging field for a better future. TAG-Org has been involved in the technology sector for more than 40 years and we are happy to share our vision with the GSMA and the world."

TAG-Org, a provider of training solutions and professional training in more than 20 sectors will cooperate with the GSMA, a trade association representing mobile operators worldwide, across various areas including translating GSMA courses into Arabic and offering them to clients internationally as well as promoting GSMA courses through TAG-Org’s offices around the world.

The MoU was signed at Mobile World Congress 2018 by HE Dr. Abu-Ghazaleh and Mats Granryd, Director General, GSMA. The two parties will also seek to collaborate on joint marketing and business development activities, as well as workshops and seminars. Additionally, the two organizations intend to work on technology white papers (an authoritative guide or report that explains the benefits of a particular technology, product or policy), research and other activities to promote the adoption of mobile technologies to bridge the digital divide.

TAG-Org has been involved in developing technologies and providing high-tech solutions through Talal Abu-Ghazaleh Information Technology International (TAG-ITI) in which the first high-tech and affordable laptop was created.
