Kenyans have been urged to take advantage of the government’s business opportunities in order to invest in viable businesses.
Dr. Kevit Desai, Principal Secretary in the East Africa Community’s State Department, said the government was strengthening public-private partnerships and investing in youth enterprises to expand manufacturing and commerce opportunities and open market outlets beyond the East Africa Community.
“We want people to be able to trade across borders to gain access to markets.” “Through cross-border trade, fish from Turkana is now being sold in Congo,” Desai explained.
He went on to say that the government enacted policy legislation and set standards to boost trade and economic growth, allowing Kenyans to compete effectively in a market with a population of 275 million people.
The PS made the remarks at the Kenya Institute of Curriculum Development in Nairobi during the National Treasury and Planning’s Fourth Medium Term Plan (MTP) 2023-2027 County Consultation Forum for Nairobi County.
The event brought together stakeholders and the general public to discuss and propose county development priorities that will serve as the foundation for the Fourth MTP policies, programs, and projects, which will take over from the Third MTP 2018-2022, which is set to end in June 2023.
According to Desai, the Fourth MTP will also implement Kenya Vision 2030’s second last phase and provide momentum for transitioning to the next long-term development blueprint.
