, NAIROBI, Kenya, May 18 – The one-stop shop for entrepreneurs requiring various government permits to start businesses will be opened in by end of June 2017.
Kenya Investment Authority Managing Director Moses Ikiara says contractors are in the finishing line of the offices at the Old Mutual UAP Tower where the firm has taken two floors.
He says the Authority is now training the representatives of different government agencies who will be at the facility.
The training is being done by an Irish firm International Development Ireland.
“The training has been sponsored by the Irish Embassy. International Development Ireland is known for big projects and also handling one stop shops for other countries,” Ikaria told Capital FM Business.
The one-stop investor centre will house key agencies responsible for business registration, investment promotion, environmental clearances, privatisation and specialist agencies which support the priority sectors of ICT and tourism as well as SMEs and human capacity development in the private sector.
The centre will offer hands-on support for investors willing to set up infrastructure, agriculture, tourism, energy, financial services, mining and real estate business among others.
Ikiara says the Authority has spent about Sh140 million for the centre.
