Kenya & Logistics:
Kenya is the ninth largest African country with an estimated growth of 5% in 2017. It has the potential to be one of Africa’s success stories from its growing population, dynamic private sector and pivotal role in East Africa.

Most of the country’s business is in private hands (with a large amount of foreign investment), but the government also shapes the country’s economic development through various regulatory powers and “parastatals,” or enterprises that it partly or wholly owns. The aim of this policy is to achieve economic growth and stability, generate employment, and maximize foreign earnings by achieving high levels of agricultural exports while substituting domestically produced goods for those that have been imported.

  • Refined Petroleum ($2.43B)
