Tarek Saadi, President of Ericsson‘s North Middle East Region, has said his company remains bullish on Iraq despite the threat of terrorism.
Speaking on the sidelines of a trade event, he said:
â€śIraq is one of the more important markets for Ericsson in the Middle East … We still believe in the long terms prospects of the country.
â€śWe believe 3G [will] be a long term revenue driver to the operators and to Ericsson.â€ť
Â According to the report from Gulf News, he did however admit that his â€śvery bullishâ€ť outlook for the country had been moderated.
The company works with all three operators in Iraq — Asiacell, Korek and Zain, with which it has a network management contract — and Saadi says its operations have not been largely affected by the increasing instability in the country.
