Kenya is looking Kenyan Expertise in the Diaspora


Tokyo (HAN) March 16, 2015 – Regional Security and Investment Partnership with Kenyans living in Japan. Kenyan diaspora is an important partner in harnessing Foreign Direct Investment which is key to growing our economy. Government is set to establish a data bank on the expertise of the Kenyan diaspora to tap its skills for the country’s development.

There is no need to look for expertise that is not locally available elsewhere when the same could be provided by Kenyans in the diaspora. Kenya authorities are beginning to work in gas and oil exploration, fields that are new in Kenya. According to Uhuru:

we need the expertise of Kenyans in the diaspora. Uhuru urged the techno-savvy Kenyan diaspora to help in translating the ideas of Kenyan youth into practical innovations that will create employment and accelerate the country’s development

Kenya do not want to be just importers of technology but developers and manufacturers of the same.

Kenyan Government has held discussions with multinational corporations like Toyota to put up assembling plants in Kenya and opportunities exist for Kenyans in the diaspora to set up small companies that would serve large enterprises. The economy of a country is not just driven by the big companies but also the small Kenyan ventures and small investments from neighboring countries, such as Somali Diaspora and refugees.
