Project East Africa will showcase major investment opportunities and infrastructure projects, as well as highlighting how Kenya as a central hub for the whole East Africa region supports foreign investment and maintains a trusted stability within the regional market. Already the strongest economy in the region and with one of the fastest growth rates in the world, Kenya is an investment destination of significant importance.

Key projects that will be highlighted at the Summit are central to these long-term investments and will provide international and domestic organisations the opportunity to participate in turnkey projects and infrastructure contracts. Infrastructure projects that require both international and national organisations, project leaders and contractors will be Project East Africa’s focus.

Project East Africa will provide an unparalleled platform to meet those directly responsible for these opportunities which are clearly in line with the aspirations of the Government in helping to outline the objectives of Vision 2030 and in particular showcasing projects in:

  • Public Works & Transportation
  • Water and Electricity
  • Telecommunications
  • Infrastructure for Oil & Gas
  • Construction
