Joined H.E. the President at the official opening of CFAO Motors Kenya Toyota Fortuner Assembly line at Miritini in Mombasa this afternoon.
The setting up of the assembly plant in Kenya is a show of confidence in the country's investment environment and a by-product of the progressive Government-driven National Automotive Policy which seeks to gradually and systematically reduce and eliminate the importation of used vehicles and used parts in the domestic market by promoting assembly and production of automotive products locally.
The plant will create jobs for young people in Mombasa and the larger Coast region, grow the region's economy, and generate revenue to be channelled towards the development of the country.
Leaders present included the Ambassador of Japan to Kenya H.E. Okaniwa Ken, CFAO CEO Andrew Velleman, Prime CS Musalia Mudavadi, our host CS Moses Kuria (Investment, Trade and Industry), CS Salim Mvurya (Maritime and Blue Economy), Mombasa Governor Abdulswamad Nassir, MPs amongs others.
