He also emphasised the need to support talent within the country to create more employment opportunities for Kuwait so that they can make a mark on a regional and global levels.

Zain entered into a partnership agreement with Microsoft on October 2018 to offer cloud-based services to large businesses and small and medium enterprises across the country. The agreement was signed at the 38th conference of The Gulf Information Technology Exhibition. After the partnership, Zain created bundles of their own services and tools along with Microsoft for the customers.

Currently, Gulf states are competing in a regional domination of technology and economic developments by innovating and coming up with new ways to attract consumers. Zain hopes that the partnership with Microsoft will prove to be beneficial in the long-term.
