This collaboration will facilitate the development of smart education, smart health, smart security and smart mobility solutions in line with Kuwait National Development Plan's smart government goals.

The Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) was signed during GITEX Technology Week 2018, in which Zain Kuwait participated showcasing its B2B and Smart City offerings. Under the terms of the MOU, Samsung, as a global leader in innovation, will support Zain Kuwait in driving transformative and beneficial IoT innovation to create exciting opportunities for consumers and enterprises alike.

Chung Lyong Lee, President at Samsung Gulf Electronics, said: “Some of the most exciting IoT innovations in the region have occurred within the business sector, where companies have been able to streamline business processes, increase productivity, and develop cutting-edge products and services. We have embarked on a digital journey with Zain Kuwait to transform its IoT initiatives - in line with its strategic road map to facilitate Kuwait Vision 2035.”

Mohammed Gharaibeh, Samsung Gulf Electronics Regional Director, Enterprise Business Group, said: “Enterprise IoT is poised for strong growth because of its ability to improve the customer experience, boost productivity, and support the development of innovative products. Our collaboration with Zain Kuwait is aimed at developing IoT-enabled services that will potentially transform its business model and help it support Kuwait's innovation agenda.”

We have started launching our first waves of digital products within our Zain Life brand that we launched in April this year to promote the digital lifestyle of our consumers. We have also set the foundation to empower the achievement of our country's vision (New Kuwait 2035), and this MoU will definitely be used to support it”.
