Compaq Sales Boom

MOSCOW-- The sales of U.S. computer maker Compaq in Russia skyrocketed by 255 percent in the first quarter of the year compared to the same period in 1993, a top company official said Tuesday. Andreas Barth, Compaq senior vice president, attributed the jump mainly to the recent withdrawal of COCOM restrictions on sales of high technology to Russia. He would not say exactly how many computers his company was selling in Russia.
