  1. Neat infographics, but is there inconsistency in MENA & GCC growth estimation.
    Beginning paragraph says that GCC will grow to reach $15 billion in 2015 and in the infograph it says MENA would reach the same in 2015?!
    Can you please clarify.

  2. Also same goes for the Casho On Delivery method, one stat mentions it being dominating 70-80% then right under it is mentioned that COD forms 28%!
