But we never forget to maintain a personal touch which each of our partners . We do not try to promote all to everyone , rather than using our experience to position new technologies where it makes sense . The fact that we ’ re not just knowing our partners very well , but even their clients , helps in this detailed channel mapping process and exercise .

Which countries have been a key focus for VAD Technologies in the Middle East region in 2021 and why ?
We cover the wider Middle East , including Turkey and Egypt . All of this region is our focus , although not necessarily for all the products and solutions we offer . However , the fastest growing countries for us currently are Saudi Arabia , Qatar and Egypt , and I guess that ’ s not big a surprise for anyone . However , Qatar has been given special intention , with the blockade removed and a more direct touch has been easier .
