Global logistics firm, DHL Express, considers East Africa and particularly Kenya, a key region for growth within Sub-Saharan Africa.
DHL Express Sub-Saharan Africa Managing Director Charles Brewer said although the recent 2015 Ernest Young Attractiveness Survey reported that Kenya received less Foreign Direct Investment than previous years, it shows that investors still have a firm interest in the country and have taken a medium to long-term approach to investing.
He said the firm’s investment in its network capabilities still remains a core focus in Africa, with a number of fleet and facility upgrades scheduled for 2015, including upgrades to Nairobi Gateway facility and service centre. Brewer is in Nairobi to meet key players and customers.
“We see SMEs as the engine for growth in Kenya and SSA as whole,” he said
