Kenya Association of Manufacturers (KAM) in partnership with Syspro Africa hosted a Live Show-themed, Financing SMEs to participate in AfCFTA.

Speaking during the event, Director for Chemicals and Minerals, Ministry of Industrialization, Trade and Enterprise Development, Mr Julius K. Kirima noted that for SMEs to trade across the continent, they must adhere to policies and regulations put in place, saying, “Government’s policies and regulations seek to ensure that all products and services adhere to the highest standards, for them to gain access to other countries.”

Syspro Africa Head of Solutions, Ms Dierdre Fryer explained that the coming into force of AfCFTA is disruptive and calls on businesses to adjust their operations.

“Technology and development under multilateral trade are inseparable. Harnessing technology, by both the business community and participating governments, shall enable the swift movement of goods, services, money and even skills in Africa. Automation of systems also has the potential to significantly reduce costs,” observed Ms Fryer.
