Expogroup introduces Manufacturing Expo Africa to the East African market beginning with Nairobi Kenya. The exhibition will be a key gateway and platform for international exporters to access the opportunities in the East African region and foray further into the African continent. The trade exhibition will be a strictly B2B expo focusing on business networking for importers, distributers and exporters in the region.
Manufacturing Expo Africa will have a broad reach across various industries including engineering, construction, infrastructure, FMCG, pharmaceutical, apparel, textiles and garments, automotive, packaging, printing, energy, power, oil, gas, food manufacturing, mining, agriculture, horticulture, forestry and woodworking etc.
Kenya’s economic development now focusses on manufacturing as a key sector. The government recognizes its contribution to national output and exports, and for job creation and has thus set key targets and specific goals to steer industrial growth. These include the development of Special Economic Zones, industrial parks and clusters, and niche products. Kenya has a large manufacturing sector serving both the local market and exports to the East African region.
There are a wide range of direct and joint-investment opportunities in this sector, including agro-processing, garments, the assembly of automotive components and electronics, plastics, paper, chemicals, pharmaceuticals, metals and engineering products for domestic and export markets
In addition to high demand for locally manufactured goods, regional markets are accessible for Kenya’s manufactured goods owing to its membership to two key regional economic blocs the East African Community (EAC) and Common Market for East and Southern Africa (COMESA).
The European Union has announced an increase its investments in Kenya and is actively looking to bolster ties with African countries in the face of competition from China. Africa has become an economic battleground between Russia and the West, with the EU also taking steps to counter China’s Belt and Road initiative to fund infrastructure projects in developing nations. An economic powerhouse of east Africa, Kenya is seen by the international community as a reliable and stable democracy in a turbulent region.
Manufacturing Expo Africa in Kenya will create a launch-pad for international businesses by enabling global investment opportunities.
Strategically located, Kenya is one of the fastest growing economies in Africa and it is in itself an economic powerhouse in the region. Manufacturing Expo aims to realize the following benefits for the visitors as well as exhibitors.
