STC’s Director General of Corporate Communications, Mohammad bin Rashid Abalkhail, pointed out that this year’s exhibition showcases future digital services and solutions that enrich the lives of individuals and institutions. He indicated that STC is not just a telecommunications company but a digital enabler and key player in the digital transformation in the Kingdom according to its Vision 2030.

Through its strategy, STC is primarily focused on the growth of services, platforms and digital infrastructure, taking into account realizing a greater value than its current assets of its employees, brand, customer base, technical assets, and business partners to ensure that sufficient resources are available to invest in future opportunities.
