Western Cape Premier, Helen Zille, says the relocation of the Panasonic headquarters from Johannesburg to Cape Town is a huge economic boost for the province. Panasonic South Africa has launched its new South African headquarters at Century City. Zille says this is a great vote of confidence in the province for their work to create a conducive environment for businesses to operate freely, create jobs and grow the economy. She says this move will also clear the way for other investors to do the same: "This is how we drive job creation. This is how we take a company with the DNA of Panasonic famous world wide for efficiency, for delivery for reliability and make it part of the DNA of Cape Town and this is why you have the extra ordinary findings by Price Waterhouse Coopers that this is the city of opportunities."
