KIRDI Meets KAM to Chart Possible Strategic Partnership and Collaborations

 

Strategic Partnership and Collaboration

KIRDI paid a visit to Kenya Association of Manufacturers (KAM) with the aim of building a sustainable partnership and collaboration targeted at providing solutions to challenges faced by the manufacturing sector in Kenya

Through this collaboration, KIRDI seeks to find solutions that will mitigate the various challenges that Kenyan industries face. These challenges include the following among others:

  1. Skills gaps i.e. limited expertise in certain specialties
  2. Low productivity and inefficiency due to obsolesce, poor maintenance and calibration issues of plant and machinery
  3. Limited  Access to information
  4. Quality Assurance issues
  5. Cleaner production i.e. environmentally sound technologies
  6. Limited Finance and Market Access
