HMD Global, the parent company of Nokia Mobile, reiterated its commitment to expand its operations in Egypt, according to a Cabinet statement on Sunday.

During a meeting with Egyptian Minister of Communications and Information Technology (CIT) Amr Talaat, HMD Global CEO John François Baril outlined plans to export 4 million phones annually to African markets by 2025, with 600,000 targeted for North Africa. Additionally, 2 million phones will be allocated for domestic consumption in Egypt.
