PCCW secondees working in Saudi Arabia

Formed by PCCW in partnership with the Mawarid Group, Saudi Integrated Telecom Company (SITC) has been awarded a second fixed-line license in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. In addition, an agreement has been signed with Mawarid Group company ITC, the country’s second licensed data services provider. Since then, PCCW has been helping to plan and build a network that will carry a range of next-generation services. Some 15 or more key PCCW professionals, including a chief operating officer, are serving on one or two-year secondments to establish new SITC operations and assist existing facilities. Terms of PCCW’s SITC consortium membership empower the Company to manage the business for at least five years on a build-operate-and-transfer basis.
