Agrawal added: "Canon's Annual Partner Conference held in December 2015 was a strategic opportunity for us to further engage with our partners and strengthen our relationships with them. As the first-point for market feedback, our partners provide us valuable insights on customers. By listening to them and working with them, we will continue to expand our business in 2016. We see strong growth opportunities in the region and we will continue to add value to all our stakeholders during 2016."
