Meta opens new regional headquarters in Dubai

Published

on

Crown Prince of Dubai Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed inaugurated Meta’s new regional headquarters in Dubai on March 8.

The headquarters will serve the region of Middle East and North Africa (MENA) and house over 100 employees. The new headquarters is based in Dubai Internet city.

Sheikh Hamdan said that the establishment of the base in Dubai Internet City reflected the emirate’s growth as a global business hub.

“Dubai continues to consolidate its partnerships with global technology players as part of its ambitious vision to shape the future,” Sheikh Hamdan wrote on Twitter.

He was later briefed about Meta and its long term objectives as it seeks to strengthen its presence in the region.

Meta, formerly known as Facebook, has been in the region for 10 years building a team, working with various communities, creators, partners, media and governments to allow its users to create content and grow, the WAM reported.

There are now more than three billion people who actively use Facebook, Instagram and WhatsApp. Of these, around 2.91 billion people use Facebook every month, while 2.81 billion use the services of Meta on a daily basis.

Sheryl Sandberg, chief operating officer of Meta, who attended the event, said: “This office represents our commitment to the millions of people who use our platforms to express themselves, stay connected to their loved ones and their communities, and start and grow businesses. There is a culture of innovation in the UAE that fits with the spirit of our company. We share an excitement about the economic and social opportunities that a connected world can create. The talent and creativity of people across the region will be crucial as we embark on the next chapter for our company – helping to build the metaverse.”

“It is no coincidence that we selected March 8 for our office opening. We chose to do it on International Women’s Day as a sign of our continued commitment to empowering women, here in Dubai and around the world.”

Meta also started, MetaBoost, in Dubai, a programme to support businesses to grow. Besides MetaBoost, Meta also awarded grants to 100 Dubai-based small and medium sized businesses (SMB’s) to help businesses affected by the pandemic.

In addition, they have also launched training and a business resource centre.

Nanoleaf’s 4D TV-syncing strip lights are a first for the brand, which is known best for making some of the best smart lights available.

Doogee V30 Pro: 30-second review

In our experience, the Doogee V30 Pro is one of the best rugged smartphones, focusing on being tough and its imaging capabilities. 

We were already impressed with the original device (see our Doogee V30 review), so we had high hopes for the V30 Pro. Equipped with a 200MP main camera instantly makes this Smartphone stand out as featuring one of the highest resolution cameras on the market; this is complemented by a 24MP low-light and macro camera and a 32MP front camera, which all help to ensure the high-resolution photo and video whatever the conditions or environment.

Motorola Moto G54 5G: One-minute review

In the Moto G54 5G, Motorola has in some ways gone back to the drawing board. There is still the overall mission to offer customers the best possible mobile experience for as little money as possible, but in the G54 5G, I think it’s genuinely achieved it. I say that in the sense of, with the previous model in this series, the Moto G53 5G, there were too many compromises for one to make. In this latest model,Motorola has properly cracked it, and I feel it not only delivers an experience that belies its price, but it gives phones a fair bit more expensive than it a decent run for their money.

Yes, Motorola has now done a complete 180 since the G53 and made improvements across the board, to deliver an undeniably affordable smartphone that I struggled to find major fault with. And the company is actually charging less for this latest model than it did for the G53. That alone should be lauded.
