20 May 2022
The Foundation for Transport of which the Malta Chamber of SMEs is a founding member...
As part of its work of business internationalisation and creating interest of foreign investors in Malta, GRTU also met Mr Ken Musebe candidate for the post of Hon Consul in Nairobi. Mr Musebe is a financial consultant and businessman and has worked with a number of companies doing business in Malta such as De la Rue, Generali International and Devere and Partners.
The GRTU explained that Maltese import products that are made in Kenya from other EU countries and most probably they would be interested to start importing directly. Even though Kenya is a country that is relatively secure compared to others surrounding it there is still a trust issue. Therefore the GRTU would provide him as a point of reference to these companies.
The representative explained that Kenya's port (Mumbasa) supplies 9 different places, amongst which Uganda, etc… All the goods going through their port have a tracking number and therefore this might be interesting for companies providing tracking services. He explained that Kenya needs infrastructure development and this might be also interesting for Maltese companies.
He also mentioned that as products they have floro and horticulture and that Kenya does not have an established pharmaceutical industry and they only import pharmaceuticals.
