U.S. technology company Hewlett-Packard said it has expanded its operations in Africa by establishing new entities in 10 of the continent's fast-growing economies. This month, HP announced openings in Angola, Botswana, Congo, Ghana, Senegal, Tanzania and Uganda, the company said in a statement. The company expects to announce the opening of offices in Ethiopia, Mauritius and Mozambique by the end of the year. HP also appointed a new country manager in each country to lead local operations. The expansion is part of HP's recently announced strategy for accelerating growth in the world's fastest-growing markets by creating specialized go-to-market strategies, technology solutions, and customer, partner and public sector relationships that meet the unique needs of rapidly developing markets. The new African offices add to HP's existing operations in Algeria, Egypt, Kenya, Morocco, Nigeria, South Africa and Tunisia. HP first opened operations in Africa in 1994.
