NAIROBI, Kenya, Jul 18 – Foreign investor interest in Kenya’s economy continues to gain fresh impetus after global electronic products manufacturer Panasonic Corporation opened the Panasonic Plaza, in Nairobi.
Located in Westlands, the plaza will include an integrated showroom with an ideal one-stop shop, with a service and a contact centre, a range of audio visual products, accessories and home appliances.
