Doing Business in Kenya Forum
The Corporate Council on Africa, in partnership with the Embassy of the Republic of Kenya in Washington, D.C., will host a trade and investment forum titled “Doing Business in Kenya” on Wednesday, July 9, 2014. The forum will follow the 2014 Smithsonian Folklife Festival, which will showcase Kenya’s rich and vibrant cultural heritage from June 25 - July 6, 2014. The “Doing Business Forum” will focus on government-recognized areas for investment, and will present a unique opportunity for the U.S. and Kenyan private sectors to discuss and engage in mutually beneficial partnerships that are aligned with the Kenyan government's economic and social transformation blueprint, the Vision 2030. The Kenyan government will present more than 45 PPP priority projects, for which they are actively seeking investment.
The forum will convene senior U.S. and Kenyan private sector and government officials, as well as key decision makers from financial institutions and international organizations with a vested interest in Kenya’s development across many sectors including agribusiness, energy, finance and infrastructure. The Kenyan delegation will include high-level representatives from more than ten key government ministries and agencies, including Foreign Affairs and International Trade; National Treasury; Transport and Infrastructure; Energy and Petroleum; Agriculture; Information and Communications Technology; Kenya Ports Authority; Kenya Investment Authority; Mines; Kenya Vision 2030 Delivery Secretariat (VDS); and National Housing.
