NEW DELHI - IT firm Mahindra Satyam Thursday said that its Dubai office in United Arab Emirates will now function as its new regional hub overseeing the integration of both its Middle East and African operations.
The company has taken this step to target more project and growth opportunities in the two regions’ booming IT and business segment, it said in a regulatory filing.
