ZTE to expand into east Africa

23 Feb 2005

Chinese equipment vendor ZTE Communications has announced plans to use Kenya as a launch pad to expand its operations into the entire east African region, including the countries of Rwanda, Burundi, Uganda, Tanzania, Seychelles and Somalia. The company has already signed deals worth around USD10 million in Kenya; in 2002 it installed telecoms equipment in the cities of Thika, Gatundu and Ruiru, and two years later donated transmission equipment to Telkom Kenya.
