Nissan Group of Africa recently moved the continent into three different regions: Central, East and West Africa, in accordance with the global automotive

company’s policy to get closer to the client base, while working with local governments to shape automotive policies paving the way for greater investment in a continent that Nissan already dominates.


"These are three key regions for us and have laid very strong foundations in all of them but 2019 will give us real opportunity to take our relationships with governments, distributors and customers to the next level in terms of intelligent mobility and getting Africa behind the wheel", said Jim Dando.
