Acer Focuses on China and Brazil
Acer Inc. is poised for growth in China, a market where the Taiwan computer maker has lagged its global rivals, as it looks to emerging economies to help it leapfrog past Hewlett-Packard Co. (HPQ) as the world’s biggest notebook and netbook computer maker by shipments this year or next, its chief executive said Wednesday.
China, along with Brazil, will be key growth drivers for Acer this year, Gianfranco Lanci said during an interview.
Mr. Lanci sees a world-wide recovery in consumer demand following the global economic crisis. “Recovery is almost there everywhere,” he said.
