MODON signs MoU to enable SMEs within industrial cities in Jazan

The Saudi Industrial Property Authority “MODON” signed at its headquarters in Riyadh a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with the Saudi Women's Innovation Foundation to work on the development of industry and industrialists in Jazan and enable small and medium enterprises to start their investments within industrial cities in the region.
The memorandum, signed by Eng. Khalid bin Mohammed Al-Salem, director general of MODON, and Aisha bint Mohammed Al-Shabaili, founder of the Saudi Women's Innovation Foundation, states that MODON will seek to find a suitable location for the center in the industrial city of Jazan and commits to equip it with all the necessary equipment, as well as train and rehabilitate those enrolled in the center.
Al-Salem said that MODON’s signing of this memorandum is part of its system to develop and improve performance in its industrial cities and to make model cities that meet the highest standards in the level of services provided to industrialists and investors, stressing MODON’s determination to move ahead with initiatives through ambitious goals to deal with the challenges ahead and expand the delivery of services and facilities within its industrial cities.
The director general of MODON pointed out that this project would support industrialization, push it toward overall quality, and make it a priority for future development in the Jazan region, which will provide an opportunity for young Saudi men and women to make their way to the future.
The project aims to create women's employment opportunities in the field of knitting, mattresses and household furniture for people with limited income through free training, thereby benefiting the families of the martyrs, orphanages and prisoners. The center will also serve more than 18 governorates in the Jazan region and will include training of 150 young Saudi men and women annually and qualify them with advanced qualification, ending in recruitment.
MODON signed this memorandum as part of its initiatives to promote the industrial system, investment climate, community service programs, and support small enterprises and social responsibility initiatives.

Deal to create largest Arab digital marketing network

ArabClicks, a performance-based e-marketing platform, has signed a joint strategic cooperation agreement with Basma Media, developer of omnesmedia.com. The two parties aim to build effective relationships and foster business connections between publishers and social media influencers on the one hand, and various e-commerce platforms operating in the Arab world on the other, thus laying the foundation stone for the largest digital marketing network in the Arab region.

The agreement was signed by ArabClicks Co-founder and CEO Mauro Romano, and Nasser Al-Sarami, CEO of Basma Media, at the latter’s headquarters in Dubai Media City.

According to the agreement, Basma Media will work with various publishers, media professionals and social media influencers in the Arab world to familiarize them with the mechanism employed by ArabClicks and then connect them to the platform. The intent is to benefit from the media content provided by these publishers to promote commodities and products marketed across Arab e-commerce platforms such as Noon, Namshi, Sivvi, Java, eBay and Tajawal, and benefit from sales commissions.

Romano said: “We are delighted to partner with Basma Media to reach out to the largest segment of media professionals and influencers in the Arab world. Through the partnership, we seek to capitalize on the exponential growth of e-commerce which has become a key business sector in the Middle East, where ArabClicks is supporting and assisting various businesses in enhancing their market share of the steadily growing electronic sales in the region.”

Al-Sarami said: “Over the past two years, we have been working at Basma Media to strengthen the omnesmedia.com platform with as many databases as possible for the benefit of media organizations and influencers. Today, the platform incorporates a database of more than 10,000 influencers and around 35,000 geographically diversified influential media people, in addition to 3,000 freelance gifted innovators working in various media production fields as well as 23,000 titles for various media products representing seven different types of mass media covering 35 countries all over the world, a record which makes us one of the key and largest media references on the Arab and international levels. And that’s the reason it would be easy for ArabClicks to deliver its message through omnesmedia.com in a successful way to the benefit of all parties concerned, including influencers and publishers as well as brands, rights holders and e-commerce platforms.”

Romano added: “With its innovative marketing tools based on transforming web content into a potential source of revenue, ArabClicks provides assistance to e-commerce companies to enhance their reach to various segments of society and to grow in the Middle East market, therefore, helping publishers do business and make easy money through web links, seamlessly and without introducing any changes to the published content or disturbing site users in any way.”
