SME Development in the Industrial sector

SME Development on the Growth of the Industrial Sector

SMEs are the building blocks for the growth of the industrial sector; promoting inclusive and sustainable economic growth, creating much-needed jobs, promoting sustainable industrialization, and fostering innovation
As a government, we continue to provide stakeholders, such as KAM, with a platform to address these challenges. This allows us to create holistic policies and actions toward achieving the anticipated growth rate in manufacturing.- Dr. Mukhwana PS

SME Development is also a crucial pillar in KAM Manufacturing Priority Agenda (MPA) 2023, which guides their advocacy with relevant Government Ministries, Departments, Agencies, and county governments. Through the Manufacturing 20by30 Plan, they aim to increase the manufacturing sector's contribution to GDP to 20% by 2030. Additionally, we seek to increase direct jobs in manufacturing from 348,000 in 2021 to approximately 980,000 by 2030
