The Kenyan tech industry just got another boost, this time from the global phone maker Nokia. The Sunday Nation reports:
Nokia plans to make Nairobi its global hub for research and investment for the India, Middle East and Africa region.
The move is a big win for the country which will serve as a nerve centre for Nokia’s global research activities, bringing together application developers, businesses and software engineering eco-system from around the world.
The company has research facilities in 13 locations worldwide, and Nairobi will be its nerve centre.
The Nairobi Nokia Research Center (NRC) located at the Nairobi Business Park along Ngong Road previously served the African region only.
