BUSINESS BEYOND BORDERS 2019  THEMES

INDUSTRIALIZATION AND CLEAN ENERGY

Transforming industry through manufacturing and clean energy

Major challenges such as costly electricity and unreliable infrastructure have been identified and targeted initiatives have been set up to tackle them. The sector is now ready for strategic partnerships that will see both Kenya and its investment partners achieve their development and investment goals.
Investors are presented with the opportunity to establish themselves independently or in joint ventures with both the Government of Kenya and the private sector in the following industries:
    • Heavy industries (Oil & Gas, Mining and Metals)
    • Textile, Apparels and Leather
    • Agro-processing
    • ICT and services

HEALTHCARE

Breaking Barriers to deliver quality Healthcare

To initiate its Universal Healthcare Agenda, the government has piloted the first phase of a programme that targets 3.2 million Kenyans by 2022.
National Hospital Insurance Fund (NHIF), the country’s medical insurance provider is also undergoing reform and strategic review backed by the World bank Group to boost its capacity to deliver medical coverage across the country.
Leveraging on the renowned efficiency of France’s medical system, French public and private actors are invited to partner with dedicated locals to invest in impacting the lives of millions of Kenyans and others in the region.

YOUTH AND INNOVATION

Leveraging on a youthful population to drive economic growth

Demographic growth in Kenya presents significant opportunities for investors and entrepreneurs alike.
Micro, small and medium enterprise development initiatives will have the biggest impact on youth employment and productivity.
The youth are increasingly venturing into entrepreneurship supported by various private and public initiatives and programs. Kenya’s start-up environment is thus vibrant, leveraging on the youth’s unique technological prowess and commitment to innovation.
We seek to assist participants to take advantage of this youthful environment to create solid business foundations in the country.
