Zain Iraq sponsors the International Media Conference In support of free speech and celebration of the Iraqi liberation


In line with its commitment to support national initiatives, Zain Iraq, part of Zain Group- the leading mobile telecom network provider in MENA, sponsored the International Media Conference, the largest media assembly ever hosted in Baghdad.

Organized by the Iraqi Journalists Syndicate in Al Rasheed hotel (Baghdad) on December 7 – 11, the International Media Conference brought together over 200 prominent media figures from more than 100 participating countries.

Zain Iraq sponsorship of this media event stems from the company’s commitment to fulfill its national role as an Iraqi company that spares no efforts to stand beside the Iraqi citizens at all times of struggle. The company also congratulated them for liberating the entire country.

The International Media Conference’s agenda included a meeting with the Federation of Arab Journalists, in addition to seminars, music shows, folkloric fashion shows, a field visit to Baghdad’s historic monuments and a visit to the three Presidencies. The event coincided with the celebrations of the Iraqi army victory, the liberation of the entire Iraqi territory, and the preservation of its land and people’s unity.

Zain Iraq has always been keen to sponsor the events related to freedom of thought and speech across the country. In fact, the company previously sponsored the annual ceremony to establish the Iraqi Women Journalists Forum, as part of its belief in the important role of empowering Iraqi women to build society. Moreover, despite the challenging circumstances, the sponsorship valued media’s active role as a main partner in society renaissance and evolution.
