More on facilitation

Writing projects and appraisals

The membership of the Kenya National Chamber of Commerce ranges from small to large corporate organisations most of which do not have the capacity to hire expensive consultancy services to prepare projects for them.

The KNCCI offers these services to them at a very reasonable fee. In case of financial proposals once they seem fit to the appraisal of the Chamber experts, . depending on the viability of the project we recommend them to reputable financial institutions for consideration. Our members and the business community in general is encouraged to Contact Us for details.

Staging trade fairs and exhibitions

Trade fairs and exhibitions have proved to be the best method of venturing into new markets or introducing a new product in a foreign market. While a manufacture can promote his new product in a local market easily from advertising in the media or direct distribution to supermarkets and retailers, it is different to venture into international markets.

This is why each year KNCCI organises and coordinates various international fairs and exhibitions. We invite all business men and women to continually visit our Media Center for updates on the soon coming events.
