The OEM reported its involvement with the programme as “first printer supplier”, with the government announcing the naming at a conference in late August. The government’s description of the programme is that it aims to “help students from low-income families in Hong Kong undertake web-based learning at home and improve their school performance”.
Epson added that it was “delighted to receive the invitation” from the government, and in the 2013 to 2014 school year it will make “an affordable offer” to over 200,000 families to purchase either its L300 or WorkForce WF-2531 machines, with eligible families asked to contact the Boys’ and Girls’ Clubs Association of Hong Kong to make enquiries or purchases of the devices.
The programme was initially set up in 2011, and printers were added after a “mid-term review” this year. Epson noted in turn that it was “looking forward to working closely” with the government and other groups to provide “program[me] participants with a low-cost and reliable printing solution”.
