Vodafone agrees first partnership in North Africa

(Sharecast News) - Telecommunications conglomerate Vodafone on Friday entered into a collaboration agreement with Tunisie Telecom, the first partnership of its kind for the British telecom giant in North Africa.
The FTSE 100 giant will provide strategic and operational support in a range of areas, including enterprise, consumer, technology, and procurement under the terms of the three year partnership agreement.

Diego Massidda, Vodafone partner markets chief executive, 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."

Roaming and carrier service agreements will be included, seeing the businesses collaborate on further potential opportunities to benefit customers.

Mohamed Fadhel Kraiem, chief executive and chairman of Tunisie 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."

As of 1534 BST, Vodafone Group's shares were down 0.35% at 181.92p.
