Zain Group has been selected by Huawei to become a strategic partner in the offering of Huawei Cloud services in Kuwait and across the Middle East and North Africa region (MENA).  

The agreement will see Huawei Cloud services initially launched in Kuwait and across Middle East, with a wide range of new offerings being made available to businesses and consumers alike.  The market in MENA is estimated to be growing by more than 20 per cent year-on-year according to industry analyst Gartner, with platform as a service (PaaS) and software as a service (SaaS) being among the fastest growing areas with public cloud service delivery.   

According to Huawei, enterprises typically require solutions that offer greater flexibility, connectivity, scalability, security, and processing power, as well as an ability to be accessed from locations around the world. Given Zain’s expertise and synergies between its operations, Zain aptly offers B2B solutions helping governments and organizations of all sizes with specialized products and services aimed at meeting their unique needs.

Charles Yang, President of Huawei Middle East
Zain is one of our most important partners in the region and this partnership will support the realization of Kuwait 2035 vision and other MENA nations’ plans alike, bringing digital to every person, home and organization for a fully connected and intelligent MENA.
