Japanese to set up a vehicle manufacturing plant in Kenya

Investing in Kenya will offer Japanese enterprises access to the East African Community (EAC), COMESA, the Tripartite Free Trade Area, and Africa Continental Free Trade Area markets of more than 1.4 billion people and a combined GDP of $3.4 trillion. A good return on investment is guaranteed, especially in our renewable energy, manufacturing, agriculture, and technology sectors.

Kenya is engaging the Toyota Tsusho Corporation to consider setting up a vehicle manufacturing plant in Kenya to tap into the growing demand for its products. The manufacturing project would reduce the number of used vehicles we continue to import and create jobs for our skilled manpower.
