StarTimes has launched its plans to set up its Africa headquarters in Nairobi, Kenya. The project will be executed at an estimated cost of US$80m in Karen, Nairobi on 20,000 ㎡ lands. The center is to be ready by the end of 2015.

The center will act as the Group’s headquarters and Dubbing Center for Film and Broadcast Television in Kenya. StarTimes’ president Pang Xinxing indicated that the Group came to that decision based on Kenya’s strong economy, and the government’s commitment to attracting increased foreign direct investment.

The project will see the construction of six units which will include StarTimes African Headquarters, StarTimes Kenya offices, a Film and Television Dubbing Center, a StarTimes Broadcast Station, a Digital TV research and development center as well as a Training Center.

Cabinet Secretary for Sports, Arts, and Culture Dr. Hassan Wario said that the government will continue to pursue efforts to make the business environment in the country suitable for investors. She also indicated that the move made by the company is bold since the headquarters will not only serve as a base from where the group’s African operations are conducted but also as a production center which will ensure the growth of local productions and talent.
