TOKYO Dec 27 Panasonic Corp said on
Tuesday that it will hold a news briefing at 5:30 p.m. in Japan
(0830 GMT) on its solar cell business.
The Japanese electronics conglomerate did not elaborate. The
Nikkei business daily reported last week that the company would
sign a contract to supply Tesla Motors Inc with solar
panels from plants in Japan and Malaysia.
Tesla said in October it would collaborate with Panasonic,
its longstanding battery partner, to manufacture solar cells and
panels at a New York factory.
