He said “by deploying Konica Minolta range of digital printing machines in Nigeria, we are contributing to digitization of printing in the country as well as improving on the local economy.”

According to him, the machines could be used by commercial printers as well as corporate organizations to meet printing needs, just as he noted that the success of a similar exhibition held in Lagos earlier in the year encouraged the company to stage another one in Abuja. Port Harcourt is the next city to host its exhibition, he said.
