Kenya, a melting port of opportunities is a thriving business centre. With a growing economy, stable socio-political Government and a developed infrastructure in place, Kenya offers corporations the ideal avenue for investments.

It’s proximity to the Middle East, Gulf and Europe, together with its easy access to the major ports of the region, enhances its international trade. The country’s economic policy is a free market-oriented one. It aims at paving the way for faster economic development of the country through private enterprise and individual initiatives.

The 16th KITE – Kenya International Trade Exhibition, a multi- sector trade event to be held in October 2012 is all set to present over 10,000 products, equipment and machinery from over 30 countries.

The number of exhibitors and visitors in 2012 is expected to rise by at least 20% since an aggressive campaign has been launched while celebrating the event’s 16th birthday. Trade visitors from all over East & Central African countries are being invited directly and in collaboration with several regional trade bodies in Kenya, Tanzania, Ethiopia, Uganda, Somalia, Mozambique & Zaire.

Though Kenya by itself is one of the biggest markets in Africa, major emphasis is being laid upon attracting traders and importers from neighbouring countries. The experience and comments of exhibitors at previous events indicate substantial gains from unexpected foreign visitors and we strongly feel that a rise in such statistics would ensure business especially for the foreign participants who form almost 80 – 85% of the exhibition.
This is a great platform to meet importers in Africa and to build B2B relations. Trade visitors have a great opportunity to meet exporters from over 30 countries.

• Industrial Machinery
