KAM Kicks off Gubernatorial Debates to Push the Economic Agenda

Kenya Association of Manufacturers (KAM) held its first Gubernatorial debate in Nairobi County on 29th June 2017 followed by Kisumu County on 30th June 2017 as part of nation-wide engagements with political leaders aimed at centralizing the economic agenda of the country in their leadership plans for the next five years.

The gubernatorial debates will focus on prioritising issues such as creating a massive export push, raising productivity to world class standards, promoting and leveraging ‘Buy Kenya Build Kenya’, tackling uncustomed goods and counterfeits, and developing a stable policy environment. Additionally, job creation through the revamping of TVET curriculum in the country.

This debate is therefore an opportunity for the business community to engage the political leaders in finding solutions,” added Ms. Mutahi.

These debates will be replicated in Kisumu, Uasin Gishu, Kiambu, Nakuru, Mombasa and Machakos Counties aimed at pushing Kenya’s economic agenda through industrialization.
