    , submarine cables are a critical piece of the digital infrastructure puzzle. The industry is expanding rapidly – but not quickly enough to meet the demand for capacity. The Indian market is developing rapidly with 20 subsea cables and 19 landing stations, as is the Middle East which offers a unique opportunity. The Middle East region with 15 countries, has 14 countries landing 32 subsea cables complemented by six terrestrial cables with combined 105 cable landings. This panel will explore the driving forces behind the growth of submarine cables plus investment and partnership opportunities.
