ASUS executive Shawn Chang revealed to journalists that the company is looking at Nigeria as a potential location for one of its future assembly plants. Nigeria is the most populous country of Africa, it's hardly a tech hub but the region contains a number of fast-growing economies and a relatively young population. However, Chang immediately added that while a plant in Nigeria is feasible in the long term, it's still premature to state when ASUS will build a factory in the country.
During a press briefing in Lagos, Asus regional exec Shawn Chang told reporters that the firm is a newcomer to the Nigerian market, but it hopes to grab some market share, especially in mobile. Then he made the plant comment:

“On building a plant in Nigeria, it is feasible in the long term. Nigeria is a great country with great opportunities. ASUS will be willing to be part of the growth of the economy through the creation of opportunities for intelligent young Nigerians to realise their dreams in the area of technological skills acquisition," he said.
