Technology, Media and Telecommunications

With active support from the government, the UAE’s rapidly growing technology, media and telecommunications sector is one of the most advanced, not only in the region, but globally. It leads the Arab world in network readiness and digital connectivity and is home to a number of thriving technology clusters, as well as the region’s best developed media, broadcast and satellite communications sectors.

Naturally there are challenges, not least around global consolidation, regulation, intellectual property and cyber security; but the UAE’s strongly emerging technology, media and telecommunications (TMT) sector is well placed to take advantage of exciting new developments such as artificial intelligence, virtual reality and connected devices.

Why QBE?
