Unfortunate.

I guess ... likely... as usual, cost of doing business in Canada expensive, esp labour / employees.

And competition in Telecommunications very difficult - starting up esp.

Recession and hold on the industry of the big players creates difficult conditions for new entrants.

... business as usual in Canada in Telecommunications.

OK, I understand.

But even without sentences I am well able to understand your point.

Yes I can write full sentences.

These days it seems we have got to read between the lines.

And everyone out there is using short forms, and smilie faces, and emoticons and all that stuff - esp. on blogs and forums.

I'm not writing a novel here - sometimes I do - yes - when I feel the need.

I'm sorry you do not like the dot dot dot thing ...

But pauses add effect.

Consider it my style. Part of my "individuality".

It does not concern me so much if you like it or not Hugh.

With all respect Sir ... it's your Forum.

I don't remember his exact name right now, but that Egyptian Billionaire, head of the group of companies that includes Orascom Telecom - I think.

Maybe a year or more ago, I watched Charlie Rose interview him on PBS.

You know, the Charlie Rose show on PBS, usually weeknights at 11:00 PM - very good show - very good interviews.

I was impressed with that interview, and with the man himself.

If I remember correctly - he has a Brother - who is in charge of other companies in the Egyptian group.

His last name was Saquiri / Sadiquiri or something like that.

Easily found with some research.

I need to have look at the article link provided in post #1.

The man impressed me so much in his interview, that I dropped his company a line - a few emails to some key persons in his Telecom organization / Orascom Telecom, that I was able to find email addresses for.

Having worked formerly in competitive Telecom in Canada - several companies - I would possibly be interested in working for his organization here in Canada.

But working in Telecom in Canada again for me is a scary thought.

I could just as easily take a PASS on that one - to put it nicely.

When posting on a forum you're communicating with people who don't know you. If you write like an idiot people will usually assume that you are an idiot, and stop listening. So we are indeed reading "between the lines". It is for this reason I would encourage you to work on the delivery of your communication (spelling, grammar, etc). I mean this in the nicest possible way.

adding that cost savings from the transfer of jobs to Egypt would be in the range of 20 per cent to 30 per cent per employee.
I'm surprised that the cost savings are that low. I would have imagined I could hire three Egyptians for everyone one Canadian.

Just found it now, the name of the person I am thinking of is:

Mr. Naguib Sawiris

I believe he is the President of Orascom Telecom of Egypt.
