East Africa revs its mo­tors

The Africa Report - - QUARTER -

Au­tomak­ers have their eyes on the coun­tries of the East African Com­mu­nity (EAC) as its economies grow and con­sumer spend­ing rises. Mag­nate Regi­nald Mengi is due to open Tan­za­nia’s first assem­bly plant (see map) in Septem­ber. Ear­lier this year, Nis­san, Peu­geot and Volk­swa­gen talked about their plans to in­crease production in Kenya – some of them potentiall­y us­ing plants like those of KVM or AVA rather than build­ing their own fac­to­ries.
