Kenya Association of Manufacturers CEO Ms. Phyllis Wakiaga
The Kenya Association of Manufacturers (KAM) has today announced that there will be a super sale for locally manufactured goods from 3rd – 7th April 2019 at Kasarani Stadium.
The super sale, dubbed Changamka Festival, will be a national event for all Kenyans to be able to buy Kenyan made products. Businesses from all counties will also be represented at the sale.
“If we are not competitive in our manufacturing agenda, the pillars of the Big 4 Agenda begin to crumble so we must address competitiveness to experience economic transformation. We are keen to boost value addition and enhance value chains in order to reap from our natural resources” said KAM Chairman, Mr. Sachen Gudka, during the launch.
The manufacturing sector is key to Kenya’s economic growth due to its potential to grow productive jobs and increase the purchasing power of consumers. As an organization KAM acknowledges that to achieve this they need to showcase the quality and diversity of locally manufactured goods made for local, regional and International markets.
