Drawing on the company’s resources and professional experience, Telin aims to fully serve current and prospective customers and partners in the Region.
"The decision to expand into the Middle East was a priority in our global expansion strategy. Opening a representative office in Dubai will further strengthen our service capabilities in the fast-growing market of the Regional Rest of Asia, Africa & Middle East (ROAM). It’s critical that we come closer to the customer and partner to service them most effectively," said Telin CEO Budi Satria Dharma Purba.
As Telin’s parent Company, Telkom is enthusiastic about the initiative as it aligns with Telkom’s main program. “Telkom’s existence in Dubai, as the gateway for business in the Middle East and Africa, will leverage and unlock the group’s potential. Telkom Group’s customers and partners have spread among continents and the Middle East region are recently become one of the most highlighted markets. Being able to interact with them directly, will ensure we deliver the best value to all stakeholders.” As Telkom CEO Wholesale and International Business Bogi Witjaksono said.
