BARCELONA, Spain Feb 27 French telecoms
operator Orange sees its revenues in the Middle East
and Africa region growing by at least last year's rate of 2.6

"In 2017, we think that we'll have a growth that is at least
identical, or even higher," said Bruno Mettling, who heads
Orange's operations for the region.
The total number of clients for the region, which amounted
to 120 million at end of 2016, will also grow over the year,
Orange's operations in the Middle East and Africa region
grew to 5.25 billion euros ($5.57 billion) last year.
