The push for IT in the region, and the move towards digital imaging products has led to record first half growth of more than 45% in Canon's regional business, according to Gordon Jones, Canon Middle East's general manager.

"We are following a consistent policy of investment in training and development together with our partners around the region, and this has been reflected in strong growth for Canon. We're pleased with the progress to date, but we are also more determined than ever to work harder and continue investing in the market," said Jones.

The company has also announced that it is to expand its Middle East regional team, adding a further 5-6 specialists at its Dubai regional headquarters shortly, with promises of continuous training for partners.

"Training is vital and an ongoing activity for Canon and is being significantly developed with our partners," said Jones.
