On the sidelines of the 10th World Trade Organization (WTO) Ministerial Conference, KenInvest in collaboration with United Nations Conference on Trade and Development (UNCTAD), launched eRegulations – Kenya’s first e-platform for trade and investment facilitation, as the country endeavors to enhance ease of doing business.

Following Kenya’s upgrade on the World Bank ‘Ease of Doing Business’ 2015 ranking and enhanced investor sentiment, the e-portal was launched in conjunction with UNCTAD to provide existing and prospective investors with a one-stop guide to Kenya’s investment regulatory framework.

eRegulations Kenya will provide investors and entrepreneurs with total transparency on rules and procedures, through detailed, practical and up-to-date descriptions of steps to go through, as seen from the user’s point of view. While facilitating the simplification of procedures, the system also aims to promote and stimulate public-private dialogue on rules and procedures – with the ultimate aim to enhance ease of doing business in Kenya.

This system, which contributes to greater transparency and efficiency in the public service and improved governance, has been installed in various countries and cities worldwide, since 2005.

Pope Francis to Visit Kenya in First Ever Trip to Africa

Pope Francis will visit Kenya from 25 – 27 November in his first ever trip to Africa. Nairobi will be his first stop on a three-state visit of the continent to include Uganda and the Central African Republic.

The Catholic community in Kenya accounts for an estimated 33 percent of the population. While in Nairobi, Pope Francis will hold a Mass on the campus of the University of Nairobi which is expected to be attended by 1.4 million people from across the country.

The Pope will also meet other religious leaders to discuss inclusivity and how people of all denominations can co-exist. Key discussions will include matters around climate change, strengthening family ties, and inter-ethnic tolerance.

It has been 20 years since Kenya hosted a pontiff of the Roman Catholic Church which was marked by the visit of Pope John Paul II in 1995. The nation is prepared to welcome Pope Francis with blessings and joy.
