ManamaWith Learning & Education being one of the key focus areas for VIVA Bahrain, the telecom operator is extending its support to the 18th International Book Fair event. Held annually as part of Spring of Culture, the event is expected to attract expected around 5000 visitors. 

In addition to being the golden sponsor of the event, VIVA Bahrain will be providing high-speed broadband coverage for free to all the participating publishing companies and booksellers for the entire duration of the event that will run until April 7 at Arad Fort.

Commenting on the initiative, Shaikh Zeyad bin Faisal Al Khalifa, VIVA’s Chief of Government affairs said, “For a community’s successful feature, learning and education plays a vital role and hence, as part of our commitment to Bahrain’s social development, it’s important for us to continue supporting such important educational programmes in the country.”
