Kenya Business Forum

SWEACC have partnered with our member Tellux to support them with Kenyan Business Forum in Uppsala on October 30th. Visiting the Kenyan Business Forum is a very interesting delegation from Kenya that Deputy President William Rutu (most likely) will lead. This is politician, public servant and business leaders from Kenya visiting Sweden and during their visit an agreement will be signed between the City of Västerås and Kericho County to prepare for an upcoming partnership agreement through ICLD (Swedish International Centre for Local Democracy).

Kenya is a very interesting marketing in East Africa, and it has around 55 million people today and what is interesting is that government decision and investments many times are decentralized.
