Promotion of Development of Regional Specific Industrial Clusters in Mombasa, Kisumu And Garissa

The National Economic and Social Council (NESC) during its 17th Council meeting held on May 29-30th 2009 recommended the adoption of a cluster development strategy as part of regional and national competitiveness strategies. Accordingly, priority sectors were identified for the initial implementation of the cluster strategy. These are: transport and logistics at the Port of Mombasa, horticulture, sugar, tea, tourism, marine and inland fisheries, livestock, energy, ICT, maize, cotton and dairy. The Vision 2030 advocates for regional manufacturing and industrial clusters as engines for realizing industrialization. The fourth component of Kenya Private Sector Development Strategy (PSDS) also aims at improving the productivity and competitiveness of enterprises. This will promote development of region specific industrial clusters in selected regions. The Ministry of Industrialization is spearheading the development of the following:

  • Fish cluster in Kisumu
  • Meat and Leather cluster in Garissa and Kajiado
  • Promote development of agro- industrial Clusters in Mombasa

The main activities being undertaken and those planned for the next three years and require funding include the following:

  • Development of manufacturing clusters i.e. improving infrastructure, Technology transfer, Research & Development
  • Facilitate formation of cluster associations in the three regions
  • Stakeholders’ forum for setting the industrial clusters in the three regions
  • Training cluster facilitators
  • • Monitoring and evaluation exercise in the three regions
