“The Middle East can use technology to drive growth and create ‘a more prosperous future in the global economy,” stated Joseph Hanania, regional general manager of HP Middle East, peaking at the Extraordinary General Meeting of the World Economic Forum recently held in Jordan.
HP focused on two issues in particular at the event—trade and education—asserting that the key to accelerated growth in the Middle East was the formation of a single economic bloc for the region and the delivery of a high standard of education to its young people.
“The opportunity exists to create a vibrant, single market of more than 200 million people,” Joseph Hanania, regional general manager HP Middle East said. “If the leaders in the region can make that opportunity real it will have a tremendous effect in catapulting the Middle East into the next stage of its development.”
He continued: “Much has been achieved so far and the leaders throughout the region have clearly identified education as a key priority for their citizens. We at hp have supported and will continue to support such initiatives around the world and in the Middle East. We will partner with leaders in this region to help them create a more conducive business and educational environment.” — (menareport.com)
