County urges investors to consider Agri-investment

Nyandarua County Government has called on investors in the various sectors of the economy to take advantage of the wide range of investment opportunities in the region.

Speaking during the launch of a two-day Investors’ Expo held at the Ol-Kalou Arboretum, Deputy Governor Mathaara Mwangi said that there were numerous opportunities for investments that remained untapped.

He said the county administration was committed to liaising with the private sector in expanding and improving the business and investment environment saying this would not only help create job opportunities but also market for local produce.

The event was intended to provide and enhance linkages and networking among the local investors in Nyandarua County in an effort to restore the confidence of their clients.

The investors drawn from the manufacturing, trade, hospitality, horticulture, banking and other sectors had a chance to explore investment opportunities available in the county.

Some of the investment openings include animal feeds plant, potato processing plant, water drilling services, establishment of a tannery, car dealing business and affordable housing among others.

The deputy governor was keen to support investment through provision of enabling infrastructure in all sectors in line with his manifesto and the County Integrated Development Plan (CIDP).

“The county government is ready to support investment within various sectors through public-private arrangements as a way to tap the expertise, resources and goodwill of Nyandarua residents.

“Our administration will remove any bottlenecks that may be a hindrance to the establishment of businesses in the county,” said the Deputy Governor.

Most of the investors expressed their interests in starting businesses in the county due to the favourable policies by the county government.
