Fujitsu rewards 15 students in Oman
Students who purchased Fujitsu laptops were entered into a prize draw for BlackBerrys, trip to Germany
Fujitsu Technology Solutions and Al Khalili Group, a major distributor in Oman have presented awards to 15 first year students and teachers who purchased Fujitsu Lifebooks under the National PC Initiative.
Fujitsu took part in the Information Technology Authority's programme, which was designed to ensure that all local Omani first year university students and teachers who joined the National PC Initiative (NPCI) received a brand new laptop.
"More than business, the National PC Initiative was a service to the nation for Al Khalili Group," said Ayub Khan, CEO of Al Khalili Group. "Our nationwide network of retail outlets and committed management and staff has made the project successful."
The initiative, which was supported by a Royal Grant, assists students by subsidising the cost for selected computer models.
Fujitsu also ran a lucky draw for 15 students, who had already purchased Fujitsu laptops, which was drawn on 16th July.
Ten of the winners will receive a new Blackberry Curve, while five students will be sent on an all inclusive trip to Munich, Germany to tour the BMW and Fujitsu factories.
"When Fujitsu was selected as one of the companies to take part in this great initiative we knew that providing our state of the art Notebooks to these students as an aid to excel in their studies would be an honour for our company," said Chandan Mehta, product manager, Fujitsu Technology Solutions. "We also wanted to show our appreciation to those students who chose our quality laptops by putting together this annual awards ceremony in efforts to give back even further to a lucky group of students, rewarding them after a long hard first year of University."
The awards were presented in the presence of the ITA Sultanate of Oman, Ministry of Commerce and Industries and the Ministry of Education Sultanate of Oman.
