We are very excited to enter the Middle East region as we see it is a very progressive and exciting market. We believe there are great opportunities for Positive Technologies to share its vast knowledge in the field and support the transformation of some of the most ambitious economies as well as some of the most advanced countries in the implementation of digital technologies around the globe.”
