Telecommunications has changed the world, our everyday lives and the basic way we communicate. Technology is converging and it impacts every category, every field and every aspect. There is no doubt that connectivity means a higher GDP.

The most advanced countries are focusing on the ICT sector and its relation to their economy, utilizing all capabilities for it. This is why the Canadian government is targeting the digital economy; Tunisia the knowledge economy; and Singapore is now transforming the whole country into a smart nation.

Lebanon has enough talent in this sector with a very high rate of engineers. Many of the most successful diaspora of ICT leaders and professionals all over the world are Lebanese.

After our continuous success in Dubai with global attendees from the ICT sector and government leaders, Telecom Review is proud to hold its next event in Lebanon to show the whole world that Lebanon is an important hub for the ICT; it offers capacity, talented leaders and professionals.
