Why Kenya?

  1. Kenya is the fourth biggest economy in Sub-Sahara Africa, after Nigeria, South Africa and Angola.
  2. Tourism is one of Kenya's leading foreign exchange earner and third largest contributor to the GDP after agriculture and manufacturing. Services are the largest contributors to the GDP (about 66%) of which Tourism accounts for a large part. The tourism sector still offers plenty of opportunities.
  3. Regional hub for trade and finance in East Africa.
  4. Information and communication technology (ICT), especially mobile technology, is an important area of growth and innovation in the Kenyan economy. Foreign telecom companies can establish themselves in Kenya, but must have at least 20 percent local ownership.
  5. Infrastructure and logistics are the backbone of Kenya’s long term growth. The government’s Medium Term Expenditure (MTP II) envisages investments of over $43 billion in infrastructure—transport, energy and water. This offers a lot of opportunities for companies in these sectors but also the construction sector.   
  6. The main sectors contributing to economic growth  are building and construction, infrastructure development, manufacturing, transport and services, and tourism particularly from emerging markets

This trade mission is a great opportunity to find out how to do business in Kenya, meet potential business partners, and to expand your network. By organizing several activities such as a “Doing Business in Kenya” seminar, several sector focused stakeholders meetings, a networking reception, matchmaking sessions and most importantly, the bilateral meetings based on your wishes, your company will be exposed to a wide variety of business opportunities and contacts.

In short, the range of activities offered in the program will expose you to your preferable counterparts and hopefully lead to fruitful partnerships with them.
