Exporting in Kenya

The need for information on exporting from Kenya arises out of the significant role that international trade plays in economic and social development and the importance of having more Kenyans understand and participate in the process effectively.

The export of Kenyan products to several markets in Africa, Europe, the Middle East, Asia and the US, earns millions in foreign currency and generates significant employment opportunities.

With a liberalized economy and globalization of markets, Kenyan exporters are expected to be more competitive and innovative if they are to effectively exploit the opportunities that world markets present.

However, international trade transactions are complex and involve many players, regulations, standards and financial relationships.

This complexity means that many potential exporters lack of adequate knowledge on what needs to be done to transact effectively and, for this reason, shy away from international trade.
