2020 was a year of negative numbers for many countries in the world and Kenya was no exception and that is why it is planning to increase the exportation of cars to the East African Community (EAC) to increase production in the automotive sector and boost the economy, at least so said government official George Makateto.
George Makateto works at the Ministry of Industry, and he mentioned to some journalists in the city of Nairobi that Kenya's automotive sector has been declining in recent months due to the COVID pandemic and the low domestic demand for cars. George Makateto who is a member of EAC said that Rwanda, Uganda, Burundi, Tanzania and South Sudan will also adopt the same plan. According to government statistics, Kenya's automotive sector produces about 10,000 cars a year, and its maximum car production capacity is 34,000 cars.
Makateto stated that this is an ideal market as products manufactured in Kenya are exempt from tariffs when exported in the region. Makateto also said that there is a national policy that aims to stimulate the development process and when approved by congress will help boost the economy and the automotive market.
The government official is optimistic that this initiative will promote the production of cars and that people will prefer them over imported used cars.
