The goal is to catalyze significant advancements in telecommunications infrastructure, enhance connectivity and promote economic development.

This long-lasting partnership with MIGA will enable us to pursue the expansion of our activities safely and meet one of our key commitments to leverage our expertise and resources to drive sustainable development and empower communities in the Middle East and Africa.

MIGA is excited to support OMEA to expand telecom services across the Middle East and Africa. Improved access to mobile connectivity is a prerequisite to economic prosperity. Digitalization of economies in Africa is a major priority for the World Bank Group. Our support allows Orange to continue building networks for provision of mobile banking and other data services. MIGA guarantees are a powerful instrument to attract foreign investment in low-income countries.
