Vice President, Marketing (PSG) HP Asia Pacific and Japan Ajay Mohan said Sri Lanka is an important market for HP. Harnessing the power of technology is important and HP will do everything to support growth in the IT industry and as a part of that initiative they have already set up their own office and presence in Sri Lanka and will continue to grow.

The peace and stability in the country will help younger people to bridge the digital divide and move into the 21st century with great confidence.
