Text size Aa Aa

The recession may be overshadowing the information and communications technologies fair .. CeBIT in Hanover, Germany but at least the organisers were able to wheel out a bit of ex Hollywood razzamataz as Austria’s Arnold Schwarzenegger, the former actor and now governor of California opened the event with German Chancellor Angela Merkel.

Arnie was there as California is the official partner country for CeBIT 2009. That was because California’s economy is big enough for it to be considered a country and the show is highlighting US companies and technology, particularly from silicon valley. It is the 23rd edition of the fair.
