Jassem Al Zaabi, Executive Director, Mubadala Information & Communications Technology (ICT), said, 'We’ve been working with Indra for some time now, collaborating on important projects across a wide range of technology areas.'

Alfonso Fernández Rangel, ME Business Development Director of Indra, said; 'This agreement is exciting for us because it marks another step in our continued growth in Abu Dhabi and the wider Middle East.'
'We’re pleased to be a partnering with an organization that shares our vision for innovation and for delivering world-class services and products. I’m sure this will lead to some major technology projects very soon,' he added.
