After rating the County Government of Uasin Gishu as the third County in the nation in ease of doing business, the World Bank is also seeking partnership to further improve business services a notch higher.
Speaking on Tuesday when they paid a courtesy call to the County Deputy Governor H.E Daniel Chemno, a World Bank delegation led by Frank Twagira said Uasin Gishu is among eight Counties that they have considered partnerships on a number of areas among them being construction permits.
The permits through the e-construction permit management system will realize best practices among architects, builders, design consultants and contractors in the construction industry.
“We have a huge potential of automation and e-permits is one of them. We therefore urge the County government to enable the sustainability of our systems. (World Bank) said Twagira.
Chemno noted the administration’s tremendous efforts in digitizing services citing payment of parking as one of the milestones that has been accomplished.
The world Bank has been focusing on areas of easing business through capacity enhancement.
