Jordan’s Ministry of Education has purchased 11,000 computers from Acer, as part of its efforts to encourage students to use computers effectively. In the year 2001, the ministry had installed 40,000 computers in schools.

“The deal represents an important expansion of the modernisation programme and we’re pleased that, once again, Acer is a key player in the expansion of the use of information technology in education in the Middle East,” says Krishna Murthy, general manager, Acer Computer (M.E.) Ltd. The deal also includes after-sales services and training from CEB, Acer’s authorised channel partner.

“Strong partnerships help deliver maximum value to our customers and our work with CEB will ensure that the schools of Jordan will be able to realise the full potential of information technology,” commented Basem Ewaiwi, regional sales manager for East Mediterranean, Acer Computer (M.E.) Ltd. “Acer strongly supports the IT initiatives of the Jordanian government, which follow the directives of his highness King Abdulla to make Jordan an IT leader in the region,” added Ewaiwi.
