Consumer Electronics Industry Snapshot Panasonic
Ed Wolffe, Assistant General Manager, TV and Network System Division - Panasonic
1) How did 1998's financial turmoil affect your business?
Since most of the turmoil occurred in overseas markets and our factory is located in North America, there wasn't a great deal of impact on our business. In fact, Panasonic Consumer Electronic Company will sell more direct view and projection TV sets than any time in our history. Our unit growth, in virtually every screen size we offer, will outpace industry growth by a wide margin in 1998.
