The event will be held on the 11th - 13th October, 2023 alongside the Manufacturing Expo Africa 2023 at the Tsavo hall of the Kenyatta International Convention Center (KICC) in Nairobi. EEPC India is a premier trade and investment promotion organisation in India representing India's engineering export community, is all set to organize the 44th edition of its flagship event. The exhibition will feature many renowned Indian engineering manufacturers showcasing their expertise and products. This event will serve as a platform for Indian engineering enterprises to connect with their Kenyan and East African counterparts, allowing them to explore business opportunities and strengthen their relationships. With ample opportunities for Indian engineering enterprises in the Kenyan market, the exhibition is expected to help Indian companies take advantage of these opportunities and expand their presence in the region.
Kenya, the second largest economy in East Africa, has experienced remarkable economic growth in recent years. With a GDP of $110 billion in 2021, the country has made significant investments in infrastructure, agriculture, healthcare, housing, and manufacturing. Kenya's vision is to become a newly industrialized nation by 2030, and it has emerged as an economic leader in the region.Indian engineering enterprises have a great opportunity to explore the Kenyan market as Kenya imports a variety of engineering products such as industrial machinery for boilers and parts, automobiles and auto-components, iron and steel products, electrical machinery and equipment, ship, boats and floating structures, medical devices and other instruments. As India exports products in all these segments in good quantity, there is ample scope for Indian engineering enterprises to penetrate the Kenyan market.
Kenya, being the highest trading country in the East African region, offers a huge potential market for Indian exporters. It is also the gateway to the entire East and Central African region, with the business port of Mombasa facilitating trade. Although there are various challenges in the Kenyan market, there are also many opportunities, especially in sectors such as infrastructure,environment and natural resources, building and construction, manufacturing, and agri-business engineering services.These sectors provide potential investment opportunities for Indian engineering enterprises, especially in areas such as power generation equipment, power transmission infrastructure, and household appliances.
