Fujitsu wins Egypt’s biggest contract
Cairo, June 1, 2009
Fujitsu Technology Solutions has provided more than ten thousand notebooks to Egypt’s Ministry of Communication and Information Technology (MCIT) in the largest procurement tender by a government body in Egypt.
The MCIT presented the notebooks to the Egyptian Ministry of Education (MoE) as part of its joint Egyptian Education Initiative project.
Under a special scholarship programme, the MoE distributed the notebooks among outstanding achievers from more than six thousand students and two thousand teachers across Egypt. The move is part of the MCIT’s efforts to promote the use of technology among students and bridge the digital divide.
“As the MCIT continues its initiatives to further the use of technology in education, we are hoping this measure will encourage and stimulate student-based learning and early adoption of technology,” said Raafat Hindy, director, Telecom Infrastructure Project at MCIT.
“As a company, Fujitsu Technology Solutions is committed to promoting the adoption of technology in schools and universities across the Middle East,” added Hussein Shehab, regional manager for Fujitsu Technology Solutions, Egypt.-TradeArabia News Service
