The same report estimates that GCC states need to invest $375 billion in telecoms in the next 10 years if they are to keep pace with changing global technologies.
Against this background, the summit's programme reflects the pressing issues affecting the telecoms industry including mobile internet, 3G and broadband, techno fraud and security and web 2.0.
With internet penetration and broadband subscription on the rise, industry experts estimate that the GCC will spend approximately 25% of their funds devoted to infrastructure development on the expansion of telecommunications.
A highlight of the summit will be the opening address by Ericsson's Jeremy Foster entitled "The New Economy - capturing the next growth phase", which details the opportunities and challenges in adapting technologies.
David Hirst, Exhibition & Conference Director of MECOM said the summit comes at a critical juncture for the telecoms market. "Every country in the region from Saudi Arabia to Iran, Palestine and Syria are all facing the challenges posed by a rapidly growing telecoms market - land-based, internet and mobile," he added. "The MECOM Summit will tackle these issues head on in the most important gathering of industry experts in 2008."
