Zain Saudi Arabia has signed a new deal with Alibaba Cloud, the cloud-computing arm of Alibaba Group, and Jawraa. This agreement aims to promote private cloud computing for businesses in Saudi Arabia.

Through the Memorandum of Understanding (MoU), Zain officials say the company "seeks to achieve high-level understandings that effectively translate the company's active pursuit to be a leader in this field and expand its portfolio of services to business customers. This, in turn, will boost commercial activities in the market, in ways that would serve the business sector, SMEs, and entrepreneurship, increase the telecommunications sector’s GDP contribution, and help realise the digital transformation strategy of Vision 2030."

Said Eng. Sultan Abdulaziz AlDegaither, Zain Saudi Arabia CEO: "Zain SA will enrich its portfolio with leading global partners such as Alibaba Cloud."

He added: "Zain SA is always adamant on enriching its portfolio by working with leading global partners such as Alibaba Cloud, as that comes in line with Zain SA’s keenness on offering the best B2B service in Saudi Arabia."
