  2. Hanan Hazem says:

    Microsoft is working to help developers across the world to be successful on our newest platforms, providing learning materials, various online programs and supporting communities. However, when it comes to availability of Marketplaces, online stores and operations in a particular geography there are some international regulations that need to be taken into account. The list above doesn’t cover all the countries in the world, true, but we’re working on broadening the coverage.
