The County Government of Uasin Gishu is set to begin the establishment of an Export Processing Zone(EPZ) after Cabinet Secretary for Investments, Trade, and Industry, Hon. Moses Kuria declared on Tuesday its gazettement.
The new EPZ which will be established under flagship manufacturing hubs is expected to open up the region economically further signifying a huge milestone, especially on matters of investment through the attraction of investors that will result in the creation of job opportunities.
The gazettement follows Governor Bii’s Administration’s quest and readiness to work closely with traders and investors in making the royal county a business hub through the establishment of aggregation centres and industrial parks.
EPZs are designed to promote export-oriented industries, which will boost the county’s export earnings and contribute to the growth of the local economy as well as facilitate export-oriented investment to the East African Community (EAC).
