Microsoft has taken a leap towards the expansion of business with opening business in the war-torn country. This is a win-win situation for both, Microsoft and Iraq. Baghdad – based Legends Land (Beqaa Al-Estora) has been chosen as the official “first” local distributor in Iraq.
Microsoft’s Business Development manager for emerging markets, Rajai S. El-Khadem described the Iraqi market a “promising and aggressive” and congratulated the partnership.
As of today, Microsoft will be officially and locally represented in Iraq to provide Microsoft licenses, support and services for our clients and resellers.
Legend Lands chief exec Ahmed Izzedien said customers will include government, public and private sector along with the consumers; and it will provide services & support through resellers. He addressed the need in updating the software used by the Government… and to move it in parallel with the economic development like in oil sector.
The excited El-Khadem asked the Iraqi government to pass law that would protect intellectual property rights and clamp down on the use of unlicensed software. Microsoft seems convinced of the move and the appointment of the local body for the expansion of its grip in the new county Iraq.
