KenTrade partners with UNCTAD and TMEA to boost international traders in Kenya

Import and export traders are set to benefit from a new trade facilitation initiative by KenTrade being supported by Trade Mark East Africa (TMEA) and United Nations Conference on Trade and Development (UNCTAD).

KenTrade with the support of TMEA and UNCTAD has commenced implementation of the E- trade portal project that seeks to implement and customize the UNCTAD’s e-Regulations system in order to publish national foreign trade procedures online to be accessible by any interested party. The initiative would enable the agency to operate an e-portal on foreign and national trade procedures.

The aim is to provide free access to information on regulatory requirements in relation to all government agencies that control export import or transit business. KenTrade will also make it possible for institutions involved in regulating international trade in Kenya to analyze and simplify trade processes with updated information on administrative formalities.


The e-trade portal is geared at contributing to KenTrade’s mandate of continuously improving trade procedures.The Project is being spearheaded by KenTrade’s System Analyst Juliet Wangechi.  Acting KenTrade CEO Mr Amos Wangora led the KenTrade team in the kick off meeting with Mr Frank Grozel and Bita Mortazavi of UNCTAD and TMEA representatives Alex Kipyegon and Alban Odhiambo at our head office in Nairobi.
