Manufacturing is a source of employment, as well as the segment from which is derived a significant portion of the nation's wealth. An increase in the production of manufactured exports and import-replacing goods in Kenya will be necessary to bring down our trade deficit to sustainable levels and to reduce Kenya’s international debt burden. When a country exports more than it imports--a condition referred to as a trade surplus--it generally receives more money than it spends, which results in greater wealth. Kenya is mostly trade deficit as it imports more than it exports. KNCCI seeks to grow the exports business largely to its manufacturing sector, in this regard, KNCCI will engage the government and its agencies in addressing issues in the business environment which impede the competitiveness.
