Trade facilitation and market access

There are quite high chances of the complex negotiations on trade that take place between the Government of Kenya and its international markets. In addition, there are negotiations between seller/exporters and the buyers to reach for the market access. The facilitation enhances the market access and favour our horticultural export products. Industry associations are active participants in these negotiations on behalf of exporters.

Trade Facilitation


Trade compliance is a responsibility for all businesses and especially important for those importing and exporting. The bigger the business, the greater the compliance expectations. Associations are at the forefront to ensure Kenya exporters of horticultural products fully understand what rules and regulations apply to them in different markets and are fully compliant.

Getting trade compliance right means exporters meet the demands of customers and suppliers while supporting long-term growth, sustainability, and competitive advantage. It’s one of the hidden elements of a successful global supply chain.
