Vodafone and Tunisie Telecom has announced a new Partner Market agreement for Tunisia, Vodafone’s first such partnership in North Africa.
Under the non-equity agreement, Vodafone will provide strategic and operational support in a range of areas, including enterprise, consumer, technology and procurement.
The three-year partnership will include roaming and carrier services agreements, and will see the businesses collaborate on further potential opportunities to benefit customers as well as the two companies.
Vodafone Partner Markets Chief Executive Diego Massidda said, “I am looking forward to bringing the best of Vodafone’s services and expertise to Tunisia, and building a strong, lasting relationship that will benefit customers of both companies. Vodafone will also gain from Tunisie Telecom’s expertise and deep understanding of the region.”
Mohamed Fadhel Kraiem, CEO and Chairman of Tunisia Telecom said, “Tunisie Telecom will be able to offer competitive services for roaming, both for the benefit of customers travelling to countries where Vodafone and its partners are present and for Vodafone customers visiting Tunisia. The agreement also gives Tunisie Telecom the opportunity to access Vodafone’s global knowledge base and benefit from economies of scale when purchasing telecoms equipment.”
