The Hub and Kenya Investment Authority (KenInvest) will host several events as part of the 5th World Investment Forum (WIF). WIF is a high-level, biennial, mult-istakeholder gathering designed to facilitate dialogue and action on the world’s key emerging investment related challenges. Its mission is to provide a platform where debate on “investment for development” can take place and ultimately promote investment flows that contribute to sustainable and inclusive development.

The Hub will play a key role in the conference. Our events are designed to shape conversations about trade and investment in the region as well as showcase local trade and investment opportunities in the region said Ms. Kanini Mutooni, the Hub’s Investment Director.

As part of the World Investment Forum, the Hub and KenInvest have organized a number of events expected to bring together policy, decision-makers and business people from both public and private sectors. They include an event targeting financial services sectors, and a B2B matchmaking session aimed at attracting and mobilizing capital into the region and creating trade linkages. There will also be a high level panel discussion on strategies to promote the region as one investment destination.

The Hub will also sponsor East Africa Investment Village where investment promotion agencies from Kenya, Tanzania, Uganda, Ethiopia and Rwanda will showcase profiled investment-ready opportunities from their respective countries.

This conference is a watershed to progress discussions around trade and investment as a way of building a competitive regional economy that will continue to attract investors in the long-term said KenInvest’s Managing Director, Dr. Moses Ikiara.
