The Kenya International Investment Conference (KIICO) took place in Nairobi on 23 – 25 November 2015 – showcasing investment opportunities on offer in Kenya.
Hosted by KenInvest under the theme, “Think Investment. Make it Kenya”, the conference brought together business leaders, local and international investors, entrepreneurs and personalities from the business world to share, discuss and explore investment opportunities in Kenya.
Officially inaugurated on day one by H.E Deputy President William Ruto, KIICO 2015 welcomed hundreds of high-level delegates to the three-day conference – a platform for the launch of Oxford Business Group’s The Report: Kenya 2016.
Leading the opening panel, H.E Deputy President William Ruto joined prominent speakers including H.E. Peter Munya, Chairman, Council of Governors to examine why top investors see Kenya as a leading investment hub and why it is the right time to invest.
Kenya’s macro-economic strengths, county devolution and key growth sectors were among the focuses that took centre stage during day two of the conference, alongside focused sector-specific debates and discussions to aid investment facilitation.
On the final day of KIICO 2015, delegates interested in live investment opportunities were invited to attend site visits across Nairobi, with investors in agribusiness brought to British-owned Real IPM, a crop protection solutions company in Thika (Nairobi).
KIICO 2015 successfully underlined the growing interest in doing business in Kenya, with the country seeing significant uptake in opportunities in the agribusiness, ICT, apparels & textiles, leather, renewable energy, property, tourism and logistics sectors.
