Kenya granted another 1 year extension of sugar import limits from the regional trade COMESA

08, Dec 2015

Kenya has been granted yet another one-year extension of sugar import limits from the regional trade Bloc COMESA, offering relief to local millers that would have to deal with tougher competition from more efficient producers, but forcing Kenyans to pay higher costs for sugar for yet another year. The decision to grant Kenya a sixth extension to February 2017 was reached during the 35th common market for Eastern and Southern Africa (COMESA) Council of Ministers meeting in Zambia.
