Batelco renews BIC partnership deal
Manama, February 3, 2014
Bahrain’s leading telecommunications services provider Batelco has renewed its partnership deal with Bahrain International Circuit (BIC), the Home of Motorsport in the Middle East, for another three years.
The Batelco move comes ahead of this year’s "2014 Formula 1 Gulf Air Bahrain Grand Prix," the 10th race to take place in the Kingdom.
The contract was signed by Batelco chairman Shaikh Hamad bin Abdulla Al Khalifa and BIC chief executive Shaikh Salman bin Isa Al Khalifa at the telecom company’s Hamala headquarters on Monday (February 3).
Shaikh Hamad said that Batelco has been a proud partner of BIC since its inception and as a major Bahraini company considers it natural to support such an internationally acknowledged operation.
“In our role as official telecommunications partner of BIC and as the leading integrated communications provider in the Kingdom, Batelco continues to deliver end-to-end communications solutions for all events at the circuit, including the annual Grand Prix,” remarked Shaikh Hamad.
Shaikh Salman stressed the significance of the role that Bahraini companies play in helping BIC achieve its goals.
“We would like to take this opportunity to highlight the importance of Batelco’s continued presence as part of the BIC family, which greatly helps to promote motorsports in the Middle East and highlight the importance of championships hosted by the Kingdom, as well as its sport, social and commercial returns,” said Shaikh Salman.
“As we approach the 10th F1 Grand Prix in Bahrain, we look forward to the continuing support of Batelco and hope that our partnership continues well into the future,” he added.-TradeArabia News Service
