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. Abdulwahed Juma, Executive Vice President – Brand and Communications, du received the award on behalf of the company

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. The Filipino community is a vibrant part of the UAE’s communities, which is why we are proud to be considered a leading brand that is impacting positive change and enabling enriched connected ecosystems to flourish within the country’s vital population segments.”

‘Stay in touch’
Earlier in 2019, du launched its Friends & Family prepaid calling package to unite citizens and residents with their loved ones overseas. This attractive package enables Filipino customers to stay in touch with family and friends in the Philippines by subscribing to a Weekly Pack that provides 250 minutes at AED 25 or a Monthly Pack that delivers 1000 minutes at AED 79.

Now in its 5th year, The Filipino Times Awards is the most prestigious award-giving body for Filipinos in the Middle East, and recognises Filipino change makers and leading brands who have introduced innovative solutions and improved the daily lives of OFWs (Overseas Filipino Workers) in the UAE. The awards gathered 76,000 online votes during the voting period from September 1 to October 25 of 2019.
