Kenya National Chamber of Commerce and Industry president Richard Ngatia says the Kenya Business Community is a representative of the real heroes of the country.

In his congratulatory message as Kenyans marked Mashujaa day, Ngatia praised the business community’s efforts in driving the Kenyan economy forward.

This, he says, makes the community true heroes of the country without who, the economic development of the country won’t spur.

“We recognize and laud the Kenyan Business Community for their contributions in driving the economy forward. You are true heroes and I wish them all a happy Mashujaa day,” Ngatia said.

The KNCCI president said the business sector was a key economic driver and should be recognized as a key industry alongside other areas of the economy like agribusiness.

Kenya national chamber of commerce and industry is a body that helps champion the growth and development of businesses from the Juakali sector to high-ranking businesses ensuring inaccessible to financial assistance.

Ngatia has recently led in signing partnership deals between Kenya and several other countries including Mauritius and France.

Kenya earns foreign exchange through trade with countries around the world with tea and coffee alongside remittances from Kenyans abroad providing the most consistent foreign exchange.

Neighbouring countries including Uganda, Rwanda, Burundi, DR Congo, Sudan, Ethiopia and Tanzania also rely on the Ports of Mombasa and Lamu for exports and imports via the Indian Ocean.
