Background for the Kenya Trade Fair
Kenya brokered the Comprehensive Peace Agreement to end twenty two years
of conflict between the Sudan and Southern Sudan. Following the signing
of the CPA in 2005, Kenyan companies were the first to set up operations
in South Sudan. The companies continue to play a major role in the
development of South Sudan through the provision of vital goods and
services as well as the creation of employment for the South Sudanese.
Kenyan companies provide leadership for delivery of quality services in
banking, insurance, hotel industry, advertising, construction, education,
health services, aviation, security services, communications, ICT among
other sectors. Kenya remains the main gateway to South Sudan and a home to
thousands of South Sudanese thereby reaffirming the strong bond existing
between the two countries.
The Kenya Trade Fair was born from the need to increase trade between
Kenya and South Sudan and to vigorously exploit the huge growth potential
that remains untapped between the two countries.
The fair seeks to enable Kenyan companies to expand their opportunities in
South Sudan, but also provide opportunities for South Sudanese owned
businesses and individuals to explore the massive growth potential in the
