In an apparent response to “China Square”, Trade and Investment Cabinet Secretary Moses Kuria may have decided to set up a similar thing which he has called “Kenya Square”.
The CS announced on his twitter that the hub will have 17 acres reserved space where traders will be required to sell only Kenyan products.
To access the spaces, traders would be required to book them in advance. Kuria insisted that the spaces would be reserved for small and medium enterprises (SMEs) to spur the economy.
According to the poster, the Ministry of Investments, Trade and Industry, Department of Business Reforms and Transformation and Export Processing Zones Authority (EPZA) would support the new initiative.
However, Kuria left traders in dilemma after failing to disclose when the hub would be opened and its location. His announcement reached over 669,000 people and attracted nearly 1,400 Twitter responses.
