Women industrialists map out ways to drive industrial growth
On 23rd March 2018, Women industrialists came together to map out ways in which they can drive industrial growth in the manufacturing sector.
The event, organized by Kenya Association of Manufacturers (KAM) under the Women in Manufacturing Programme, looked at bridging the gaps that make it impossible for women to venture and thrive in the manufacturing sector.
The Cabinet Secretary for Public Service, Youth and Gender Affairs, Prof. Margaret Kobia noted that the objective of the Women in Manufacturing Programme is therefore wholly appropriate and timely.
“The objectives of the Women in Manufacturing Programme are perfectly aligned to the Government’s Agenda under the Big 4 through which the administration hopes to catalyse development, economic wellbeing of all citizens and inclusive growth. Women are capable of inventing and creating new products and services that maybe no one else can come up with,” added CS Kobia.
