BENEFITS

Kenya, like many other countries, imports machinery and technology from India and other countries to boost its manufacturing capabilities, including in the packaging industry. India has been a key trading partner with Kenya for many years, and Indian companies have been involved in the supply of packaging machinery and technology to Kenyan businesses.

Besides India, Kenya also imports packaging machinery and technology from other countries, including China, Germany, Italy, and the United States. These imports are essential in helping Kenyan businesses to increase their production capacity, improve product quality, and remain competitive in the local and international markets.

The Kenyan government has put in place policies and measures aimed at attracting more foreign direct investment into the country, particularly in the manufacturing sector. As a result, there has been a growing interest among foreign investors, including those from India and other countries, to set up manufacturing plants in Kenya and invest in the country's packaging industry. This has resulted in increased imports of machinery and technology from these countries, with the aim of establishing world-class manufacturing facilities in Kenya.
