From the 16th November to 18th November this year, Kenyatta International Convention Centre (KICC) will be a busy place. If you are interested or you have a keen eye in the manufacturing industry in Kenya then you need to mark that date on your calendar. Kenya Association of Manufactures (KAM) will be hosting the first ever Kenya Manufacturing Summit and Expo.
KAM will host the three day event in collaboration with The Ministry of Industry, Trade and Cooperatives. The aim of the Kenya Manufacturing Summit and Expo is to showcase the quality and diversity of locally manufactured goods made for local, regional and international markets.
The immediate effect will be to celebrate the advancements of locally made products. This will also highlight their global positioning by showcasing them not only to the general public but also the government of Kenya. Through this move KAM aims at dismantling the long-held belief that local goods are not of high quality.
In the Summit critical conversations on industrialisation policy will be held. In this platform KAM hopes that industry stakeholders will deliberate on transforming the nation through industrialisation. Likewise they will seek to put clear the expectations on industry in this transformation.
