Trade and Policy Department
The Trade and Policy Department is mandated to broadly deal with Trade Policy and specifically, Regional Integration, Trade Facilitation and Illicit Trade.
- This covers domestic, regional, and international trade policy issues and focuses on how the developed guidelines can support the growth of Kenyan trade at these levels.
- Seeks to address issues of domestic, regional and international Non Tariff barriers, import tariff exemptions and product standards among others.
- Processing of work permits and AGOA visas for exporters to the USA.
- Addressing illicit trade also lies squarely within our functions and the department has made a lot of strides in ensuring that we make gains in the fight against illicit trade.
