The essential guide to IT transformation

Second sources revealed to the The Register today that Bill Clinton, current president of the United States, will seal oil deals with Bangladesh on the 20th of March next, as he helps Intel introduce technology into the country to aid local conditions. Clinton will visit one of the poorest countries in the Indian sub-continent as part of a whistle stop tour which involves the US acquiring massive oil rights as part of an aid programme it already has in place. In February, we revealed that Intel and a startup had attempted an endeavour in Bangladesh, formerly known as East Pakistan, but were baffled by the local terms of doing business. India helped liberate East Pakistan from its situation back in the early seventies, aided and abetted by former Beatle George Harrison. The oil wealth in Bangladesh is wholly out of proportion to the gross domestic product the small country produces. Sources very close to Intel told us in an unusually drenched Palm Springs last month that a deal of this kind was on the cards. According to our second sources, President Bill Clinton will steam in on the 20th of March and attempt, on behalf of a whole tranche of US companies, to clinch several deals -- although the oil deal is his primary aim. No one from Intel, or the US or Bangladesh governments was available at press time to comment on the story. ® See Also Intel readies move into Bangladesh
