This event reaffirms the association’s commitment to facilitating and addressing issues impacting manufacturers, while also highlighting opportunities within the region and beyond.
The Central Region Chair, Mr Maina Ruo acknowledged and appreciated the effort of all members in fostering manufacturing growth in the region and the nation as a whole. He expressed his gratitude to the KAM Secretariat for their ongoing efforts in coordinating with both county and national governments on matters significant to the members.
KAM Head of Policy Research and Advocacy, Job Wanjohi emphasized that the manufacturing sector holds the key to the country’s development. He stated, “KAM is actively collaborating with the government to enhance the competitiveness of this sector. Together, we are working towards realizing the vision of achieving robust manufacturing growth by the year 2030.” He also stressed the importance of utilizing DRS services, which is an incentive granted to manufacturers who import industrial inputs and raw materials for the production of goods. Through the Duty Remission Scheme, manufacturers can import raw materials and inputs for the manufacture of products at 0% duty.
