The 8th International Telecom
Development Forum and Expo for the Arab world and North Africa, ARABCOM
2005, will be held in Tunisia in June. According to the organisers, 500
participants will take part in the 28-29 June ARABCOM 2005, an exposition
that will showcase the latest technology as presented by regional and
global companies in the telecommunication and information technology.
"The exposition will play a natural bridge between Africa and the Arab
World," Katia Tayar, CEO Arabcom group, said.
As for the choice of Tunisia to host the event, the organisers said the
country "now has one of the most developed telecommunications
infrastructures in Northern Africa."
"In 2005 the focus will be on expanding broadband services throughout the
country," she added.
Analysts think Arabcom 2005 Tunisia will constitute another step to meet
the growing aspirations of the Arab people, for telecom players seeking to
further consolidate their position in the region, and for international
businesses to explore the region's lucrative opportunities in telecoms and
ARABCOM is today internationally recognized for having built bridges of
collaboration "between the developed and developing regions, between the
privileged and the unprivileged and between the North and The South",
according to organizers.
Delegates from more than seventy countries will attend the event and
thirty speakers are expected to take part in the Forum's 10 sessions.
Running in parallel with the forum, the expo will showcase the latest
technologies presented by regional and global companies in telecoms and
