Under the agreement, the two entities will cooperate for Ooredoo to provide state-of the art, mobile-first financial services on Huawei’s platform for both consumers and merchants in Ooredoo’s markets.

Aziz Aluthman Fakhroo, Managing Director and Group CEO at Ooredoo Group, said: “A key pillar of our strategy is evolving our core, and this includes identifying new use cases and exploring new businesses in our immediate industry adjacency such as Fintech, where Ooredoo has already established successful operations in our home market Qatar.

Financial inclusion

“Our plan in 2023 is to evolve our Fintech marketplace to other markets within our footprint, enabling us to simplify everyday financial transactions and drive financial inclusion. This new partnership agreement with Huawei will solidly underpin our efforts in this field.”

Li Peng, President of Carrier BG at Huawei, said: “This agreement is an important step forward to foster our long-term strategic partnership with Ooredoo. Huawei is committed to providing industry-leading technology with purpose that will ensure the realisation of this project and help Ooredoo achieve business success.”

The new cooperation with Huawei will further enhance Ooredoo’s market leading role in this region and improve the competitiveness in this industry.
