GSMA, the world's largest mobile operator’s organisation, has announced the election of Saudi Telecom Company (STC) as a member of GSMA's Board.

The election comes after STC won the board’s election to join the top 25 mobile operators in the world. With more than 1,100 members from the global mobile ecosystem, the number of customers benefiting from the organisation's policies and guidelines is more than 7.5 billion.

The GSMA organises the most important mobile events in the world, such as the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, the Mobile World Congress in Shanghai, the Mobile World Congress in the America and the Mobile 360 Series conferences.

STC Group CEO Nasser Al-Nasser described the success in the election to join the GSMA board as an important achievement for the company, as it reflects the great potential and value of STC locally, regionally and globally. He said it also reflects the advanced position reached by Saudi Arabia's telecommunications sector with the support of the Ministry of Communications and Technology Information and Communications and Information Technology Commission to achieve the targets of the national transformation plan 2020, and the kingdom's Vision 2030.

Al Nasser said that GSMA has an important role to play on the global dimensions, and that STC's victory in this elections strengthen its position as an active member of the global mobiles industry. He also said it contributes to enhancing the kingdom's contribution to global policies, as well as supporting opportunities to build alliances and partnerships with big international players.
