"We created a concept a sound business model and a dream. This has today turned into a reality and has surpassed all of my expectations," said His Highness Sheikh Maktoum Hasher Maktoum Al Maktoum, the founder of A1. "We already have 13 countries signed up and we are negotiating with a further 19."
