Google to open Africa’s first product development center in Nairobi

Google, a subsidiary of the US Alphabet Inc., has announced that it will invest in the establishment of Africa’s first product development center in Nairobi, the capital of Kenya. The company is preparing a service provision system in response to the increase in Internet usage in Africa.

Google forecasts that Africa’s Internet users will reach 800 million by 2030, and young users will account for one-third of the world’s total, making it an attractive investment destination.

The company’s executives and the top African corporation explained in a joint blog on the 19th that they will hire engineers, project managers, researchers, etc. for the center.

Alphabet Inc. CEO Sundar Pichai announced in October last year that he would invest $ 1 billion in various businesses in Africa over the next five years to help promote digitization in each country.

It has already opened an artificial intelligence (AI) center in Accra, the capital of Ghana.
