TechnoWorld opens in Lagos

Multi-million dollar Korean technology company, LG Electronics (LGE) Nigeria Limited, has formally opened its ultra modern TechnoWorld in Lagos, where it plans to share its Information Technology (IT) experience with consumers based on its dream to contribute to the technological growth of the country.

President, LG Electronics West Africa Operations, Mr. Tae Hun Ryu, while declaring the facility open said it is yet another land mark achievement for his company and the nation.

He reiterated LG Electronics commitment to the country, saying that the new facility is designed with a class room that seats 25 people at a time.

The TechnoWorld, he said, is the second LG Electronics show room to be opened in the country after the commissioning of the first Digital Center in May last year.

He explained that unlike the Digital Center, the TechnoWorld is the company’s expression of commitment to Information and Communications Technology (ICT).

Ryu described the TechnoWorld as a point of Information Technology transfer to the country, stressing that everything in the place is IT driven with a focus on telecommunication and technology.

The training programme according to him, is IT skill acquisition and development for young Nigerians, even as the centre is fully air conditioned with 25 laptops attached to each desk of prospective students.

He pointed out that LG Electronics investment in the country has been very deliberate in the last couple of years from sports where it helped talent discovery through sponsorship of grass root competition to international games such as the 2003 and 2004 LG four nation cup.

LG Electronics has consistently displayed its leadership position in the country with the establishment of various consumer care programme such that the free product repair and warranty programmes.

The firm’s long-term goal for the IT market, he said, is to make every Nigerian information technology compliance by making LG’s products available while at this same time training the consumers.
