Construction Industry Seeks Opportunities and Partnerships with US Companies

Kenya’s government agencies and local construction companies recently participated in one of the largest construction expos in the United States, demonstrating their commitment to exploring new opportunities and forging partnership

Led by Cabinet Secretary Zachariah Njeru from the Ministry of Lands, Public Works, Housing, and Urban Development, the Kenyan delegation showcased their capabilities at the CONEXPO in Las Vegas. Joining them were Principal Secretary Joel Arumonyang Loremoi from the Ministry of Public Works, as well as officials from the National Construction Authority and other relevant stakeholders.

During a reception at the expo, CS Njeru emphasized the vast potential for Kenyan construction companies to export building products to the US market. He expressed his belief that the construction industry has the capacity to surpass agriculture and textiles as one of Kenya’s primary exports to the US.

Kenya’s participation in the expo aligns with the government’s ongoing efforts to advance the Affordable Housing Programme, which aims to construct 200,000 affordable housing units annually. In support of this initiative, the government is actively encouraging both local and foreign investors to collaborate with the state in the construction of these much-needed affordable housing units.

The expo itself showcased the latest advancements in technology-based solutions within the construction industry, providing a platform for knowledge exchange and fostering innovation.

While in the United States, CS Njeru also attended high-level events held in conjunction with the 67th UN Commission on the Status of Women in New York. During these events, he addressed the potential of digitization and automation of land records to empower women and enhance their rights.

Overall, Kenya’s construction industry is determined to seize opportunities and cultivate partnerships with US companies, leveraging technological advancements and promoting sustainable development in line with the country’s goals.
