In the company press release, representatives from MoneyGram expressed excitement about the partnership with barraq, emphasising MoneyGram's extensive network, technological capabilities, and mobile APIs. The partnership aims to tap into the potential of barraq, projected to be the Middle East's fastest-growing financial app, to reach new customers and improve MoneyGram's position in one of the world's largest outbound remittance regions. 

MoneyGram has solidified its position as a remittance partner in the Middle East's digital ecosystem. The partnership with barraq signifies opportunities for further expansion as MoneyGram continues to strengthen relationships with existing partners in the Middle East.
