manufacturing base and supportive business environment as a stepping stone to
going global. We look forward to many more great things from Zecotek."
    "Our 2D3D Display offers multiple viewers true volumetric visualization
and exhibits depth and parallax over a wide viewing angle unlike any other 3D
display available today," said Dr. A. F. Zerrouk, Chairman, President and CEO

government cost incentives and to accelerate the commercial development of its
2D3D Display, laser, solid-state photo-detectors (MAPD) and other technologies
as a base for its laser and vanadate crystal production. The facilities
include 836 square meters (9,000 square feet) of lab, production and office
space in Singapore's Science Park II, located adjacent to the prestigious
Institute of Microelectronics and Singapore National University. Guests at the
inauguration were given a demonstration of Zecotek's 2D3D Display, lasers and
a tour of the crystal processing facilities.
    "We have been delighted with the speed and efficiency of setting up in
Singapore and the quality and economy of operations," continued Dr. A. F.
Zerrouk. "We came here to benefit from government incentives and to leverage
Singapore's excellent research and development efficiencies, support
mechanisms and world class manufacturing facilities and we have not been
disappointed. We have made tremendous strides here in the past six months and
