Kisumu is currently undergoing tremendous enterprise transformation evident by; revival of the old Kisumu Port, establishment of a rapid transport system, development of the special economic zone, modernization of Jaramogi Oginga Odinga Teaching and Referral Hospital and establishment of a cancer center at the facility.
Currently, Ksh. 60 million has been set aside this financial year. Additionally there is the ongoing construction of the Kisumu Business and Incubation Center and the level preparedness towards hosting AfriCities 2021.
“We meet our ambitions through deliberate interventions to develop niche opportunities for foreign investors to tap. It is against this this backdrop that my deputy and I hosted the newly ambassadors chaperoned by Ambassador Njeru Githae to have a conversation of the available investment opportunities in Kisumu and to keep them abreast of the county’s level of preparedness towards hosting AfriCities 2021” said the Governor.
The idea is to invite the ambassadors to lobby for development partners to flock Kisumu from their respective countries thus revamping the County’s economic base.
