The Blackberry Contention

Yet again. Although, this time around it is a matter of ‘limitations’ for SMEs.

By the by, is Kipp the only one thinking about the impact these TRA regulations have on SME’s, which the UAE is supposedly keen on promoting and encouraging?

Just this week, there were more encouraging news reports on the moves to establish a SME equity market. Abdul Baset Al Janahi, the chief executive of government agency Dubai SME told The National that Dubai SME and the Department for Economic Development (DED) were working hard for a small-business bourse: “The DIFC [Dubai International Financial Centre], the DFM [Dubai Financial Market], all of us are on the same table (…) We are looking at the opportunities. The idea has been accepted by the highest authorities.”

That’s all very well, but you just can’t be working towards implementing an SME bourse and at the same time enforce discriminatory and limiting teleco-policies for the SME sector. Come on, guys! Oh well. We can’t wait to see what other “compromises” such result from this all.
