Support to Ministry of Trade in the implementation of Kenya’s New National Trade Policy & Private Sector development strategy Goal 3: Expert on trade policy and trade institutions

Country: Kenya

Sector(s): Economic development

Date: 09/2011 - 09/2012

Client / Beneficiary: Ministry of Trade and specialised agencies

Financing Agency: TMEA (Trademark East Africa)

Project Value: 742,075 €

Description of the project and Services provided:

The broad objective of this project is re-aligning institutional structures, legislation, and regulations to implement the new National Trade Policy address to trade facilitation in order to improve the private sector competitiveness and to provide training and analytical support to Ministry of Trade and its stakeholders on trade policy.

Besides technical assistance inputs provided by the two consultants (on Trade Facilitation & Trade Development; and Trade Policy & Trade Institutions), the project seeks  to leverage and strengthen linkages amongst the highest executive and political levels of Government to push through pipeline trade facilitation reforms and removal of NTBs     ( National Trade Barriers) within Kenya. An important aspect of this support will be increasing the accountability of GoK  ( Government of Kenya) agencies responsible for streamlining trade facilitation and removing NTBs through public advocacy in the media; utilising the TMEA (Trade Mark East Africa) network across EAC  (East African Community) partner states; and providing a channel for commercial diplomacy to find pragmatic solutions to NTB removal.
