stc Bahrain and China Telecom Global boosting MENA-APAC connectivity

stc Bahrain has formed a new partnership with China Telecom Global aimed at digitalising economies in the Middle East and North Africa.

The agreement will provide stc Bahrain’s customers with more reliable and accessible connections between the MENA and Asia-Pacific regions.

Stc Bahrain offers an extension backhaul network within Bahrain as well as terrestrial fibre cable links between several markets in the region.

China Telecom Global meanwhile will be able to offer its MENA customers better support, and provide its Chinese customers with new channels as they seek to expand into the digital economy internationally.

“Through this partnership, China Telecom is able to extend its services to its clients in the Middle East while utilising stc Bahrain’s reliable and robust infrastructure,” said stc Bahrain CEO Nezar Banabeela. “We are also delighted to consolidate our presence in Asia Pacific and are looking forward to a long-term partnership with China Telecom.”

Changhai Liu, managing director of China Telecom Africa & Middle East, added: “this new collaboration with stc Bahrain further allows China Telecom to strengthen its service capabilities in the Middle East and North Africa region. We look forward to this long-term partnership with stc Bahrain and hope to unlock potential and create new value for our users.”
