Kenya National Chamber of Commerce and Industry (KNCCI) has offered to train Kenyan farmers to gain access to international markets, including China, officials said on Monday.

Fatma El Maawy, second vice president of KNCCI said that Kenyan farmers will receive training in advanced agronomic practices in China.

“The overall objective is to ensure that Kenyan produce can meet the requirements to (gain) access to Chinese markets,” El Maawy said on the sidelines of the Kenya-Indian agribusiness forum. The Federation of Indian Export Organizations is visiting Kenya with a delegation of 27 companies from India primarily in the agricultural sector who are seeking investment, joint venture and other business opportunities.

El Maawy noted that despite Kenya being an agricultural-based society, it remains a net food importer.

The bulk of Kenya’s exports constitute unprocessed agricultural goods. Enditem
