Bupa Arabia for Cooperative Insurance has launched a CSR initiative to encourage the growth of Saudi productive families, in partnership with Nine Tenth (9/10ths), one of HRDF’s Saudi Vision 2030 programs that invests in Saudi productive families and SMEs.
Bupa Arabia will host the families’ products at the “Tojjar Booth” located in the cafeteria at the company’s headquarters in Jeddah.
Ali Sheneamer, chief business development officer at Bupa Arabia, said: “We are pleased to be launching this initiative as we welcome more than 30 productive families for a full year and equip them with the right opportunity to provide quality food on a bi-weekly basis at the company’s main cafeteria. This stresses our keenness to pave the way for small- and medium-sized enterprises to play a vital role in the development of the national economy in synergy with the Kingdom’s Vision 2030. The latter aims to entice these businesses to positively contribute to the Saudi GDP and increase its contribution from 20 to 35 percent by 2030 as a key pillar of the Kingdom’s economic growth.”
Bupa Arabia aims to participate in various activities that promote community welfare.
The company has launched several programs to enrich entrepreneurship in the Kingdom, such as the Bupa Business program that offers health insurance plans created for SMEs, and Khamis Al-Amaal, an online platform where a number of local SME success stories are highlighted to motivate entrepreneurship potential in Saudi youth.

ITC launches 5G standalone network for enterprise customers
  • ITC is the first operator in the Kingdom to launch a 5G standalone (SA) network
  • Aims to provide cutting-edge fixed wireless access (FWA) services to enterprise customers

Integrated Telecom Company (ITC), a provider of telecom and ICT services, has soft-launched its 5G wireless network service in Saudi Arabia, with the aim of providing cutting-edge fixed wireless access (FWA) services to enterprise customers.

ITC is the first operator in the Kingdom to launch a 5G standalone (SA) network — the latest version of 5G, which works fully on a 5G core network without the use of any legacy (4G or earlier) technologies. Essentially, it is pure 5G end-to-end.

The launch is part of ITC’s commitment to the digital transformation of industry verticals such as oil and gas, education, healthcare, IoT, gaming, and entertainment in the Kingdom. ITC has a wider deployment plan of FWA services across the Kingdom, delivered in stages, with various new services and applications.

“This new service is another milestone for ITC to address growing market demand in areas that lack fiber coverage and lead in a new generation of service offerings enabled by 5G,” said Osama Al-Dosary, CEO of ITC.

He added: “We appreciate the enablement the CITC has given for this initiative, which is in line with the Kingdom’s digital transformation and increasing internet coverage objectives, moving us closer toward the realization of the Kingdom’s Vision 2030.”
