Tecno Plans To Establish Nigerian Phone Production Line
Tecno Mobile has concluded plans to set up a Nigerian production line to produce phones locally.
The company made the disclosure at the unveiling of the latest Camon smartphone series, the Camon X and X-pro, in Lagos recently.
The General Manager, Tecno Mobile, Stephen Ha, while speaking about the uniqueness of the latest Camon duo, also emphasised the brand’s willingness to look into setting up local production lines in Nigeria and further highlighted a couple of bottlenecks in the process.
He said, “Nigeria is a key interest market for us and we have considered setting up a massive factory here that will not only create a lot of jobs for Nigerians but also empower her millennials with key interests in technology to get hands-on and be more involved in the development and design of the world next revolutionary smartphones.”
He, therefore, urged government to remove some of the roadblocks to investments in the country.
The Minister of Communications, Adebayo Shittu acknowledged government’s failings in the past and its inability to provide an enabling environment for investors to set up locally.
“I want to appeal to Tecno Mobile that we are ready to partner with you. We will assist you in every way possible to encourage you,” he said.
Shittu stated that the proposed production line would serve the 200 million Nigerians and the West Africa sub-region as well as create jobs.
