Gaza in Palestine is hardly known for its IT development but mainly because of the strides between the Palestinian and the Israelis. Gaza is namely in the care of Palestine, but occupied by Israel. Intel on the other hand hasn’t let this stand in the way for starting up an educational technology center in Gaza to offer IT educations and stimulate the technology development in the area. Considering that half the workforce is unemployed we have to say that this is a pretty good initiative. Intel already has an important section down in Israel and it was Intel’s Israeli team that developed the popular Pentium M architecture.
”Though the security situation in Gaza is not good, Gubser believes the willingness of Intel to be an American corporate pioneer in the Gaza Strip may encourage other American corporations to follow.”
