Mobile phone giant Nokia has opened a regional office in Egypt to serve the North East Africa region.

Located in Cairo, the office will manage operational functions in Egypt, Libya and Sudan.

The new office comes shortly after the cellular firm opened its regional headquarters in Dubai, the launch of which was marked by CEO Olli-Pekka Kallasvuo's first visit to the region.

Kallasvuo said at the time that Nokia anticipates the Middle East and Africa region will be one of its strongest growing regions over the next three to four years, contributing almost a quarter of the global increase in subscriptions it expects to have over the next three years.

The mobile giant has forecast a global market of four billion subscriptions in 2010, up from just over three billion at present.

"The MEA region is a critical market for Nokia," Kallasvuo said during the trip.
