The estabishment of appropriate industry-related policy, legal and institutional frameworks at the county and national levels is key in promoting industrial development.

This sub-theme will focus on:

Discussions will focus on MSME development as envisioned in the BETA, specifically:

  • Access to finance: Providing MSMEs with affordable loans and financial products will stimulate growth and create employment opportunities
  • Skills development: Offering training programmes and technical assistance will equip enterpreneurs with the skills and knowledge necessary to manage and grow their businesses.
  • Market access: Connecting MSMEs with local and international markets through trade agreements and market information
