US social media firm Snap Inc. has signed a memorandum of understanding with Qatar’s Government Communications Office (GCO) to open a new office in Doha, expanding its footprint across the Middle East.

This move is part of Snap’s efforts to work closely with local partners and businesses to grow the country’s digital landscape, GCO said in a statement.

The New York Stock Exchange-listed company said that Qatar has witnessed significant growth over the last two years with the discovery of several local creators and Arab expatriates.

The company is in the process of hiring a team to run the operations locally.
