Today, the Chairman House of Lords Economic Affairs Committee Clive Hollick, along with the UK High Commissioner to Kenya, Nic Hailey, officially opened the Kenya Markets Trust office in Turkana.
The Kenya Markets Trust is a Kenyan organisation which works in partnership with the private sector and government to unleash large scale, sustainable market transformation by changing the underlying incentives, capacities and rules which shape how markets work.
It aims to make markets more inclusive, more competitive and more productive with a focus on recognising that these are the main mechanism through which wealth is created and growth occurs.
KMT’s long term goal is to deliver large scale, sustainable change in our selected markets which benefits all players in the market, including poor producers and consumers.
The KMT are supported by UK’s Department for International Development (DFID), along with the Gatsby Charitable Foundation (GCF) under the 6 year Kenya Market Assistance Programme (MAP).
