EEPC India takes its flagship engineering exhibition INDEE to Nairobi, Kenya, the dominant economy in East Africa and the fourth largest of the continent in terms of GDP. INDEE Kenya will be held concurrently with Kenya Pharma Expo.
Kenya, the dominant economy of East Africa, is the financial and communication hub, not only of the East African region but is also among the top economies in the continent.
Kenya is a member-state of the Common Market for Eastern and Southern Africa (COMESA) and the East African Community (EAC). The capital Nairobi is regional commercial hub and the economy of Kenya is the largest by GDP in South-east and Southern Africa.
Within the EAC, the Kenyan economy is the anchor and much more dynamic than those of other member countries. The country’s economy is much better linked to the other economies in terms of investment flows and trade. Thanks to its more advanced human capital base, its more diversified economy, and its role as a leader in the information communication revolution in the region, Kenya’s economy is expected to remain strong, creating salutary benefits to the other member countries.
KENYA is located in the eastern part of the African continent, in a geographical area rich in natural and mineral resources, which provides significant economic potential. The country borders Somalia, Uganda, South Sudan, Tanzania and Ethiopia.
