Businesses in Kisumu call for investment incentives
By: KAM
The business community in Kisumu today called on aspiring governors to create and enhance incentives to attract more investors to augment the meagre budget that the County is set to receive from the national budget, a top businessman has said. This was said at a County economic debate held at Imperial Hotel hosted by Kenya Association of Manufacturers (KAM) in partnership with World Vision. Two aspiring Governors who are vying for the leadership position in the County, Mr Jack Ranguma and Professor Eric Osenya were both present at the debate.
