Dubai, UAE, 23rd December 2019: As a proud homegrown company and an integral part of the United Arab Emirates’ (UAE) social fabric, du, from Emirates Integrated Telecommunications Company (EITC), has been recognized as the country’s ‘Preferred Telecommunication Company of The Year’ at the fifth edition of the annual The Filipino Times Awards.

As a prestigious annual awards occasion that recognizes exemplary industry leaders and top brands in the UAE, The Filipino Times Awards honoured du for its customer-centric approach to business and for the strong rapport it has built among members of the Filipino expat community across the UAE.

The awards recognition also reaffirms du’s mission towards driving values of inclusivity, diversity, and tolerance across customer segments during the nation’s Year of Tolerance. 

‘An emblem for diversity’
Abdulwahed Juma, Executive Vice President – Brand and Communications, du, said: “The evolution of du has seen the company establish and embrace a longstanding commitment to diversity and inclusion. The prestige of this commitment ensures UAE residents across all nationalities are able to benefit from our world-class services, solutions, and connected value.
