Acer May Set up Office in Burma
22 October 2012
Acer, the world’s fourth-largest personal computer maker, is thinking of opening up an office in Burma, according to a report by The Bangkok Post. The company recently established a new US $1.6 million service and maintenance center in Thailand to serve as a hub for Burma, Laos and Cambodia, and is now considering setting up offices in each of these countries, the report said, noting that Burma would be a priority due to its large population. The move is part of a plan to expand the company’s operations in the region ahead of the establishment of the Asean Economic Community in 2015.
