Geography – Kenya

With a big and vibrant sea port, good road and rail infrastructure and well trained work force, Kenya is the centre of commerce and trade in the region, with the country being one of three key locations in Africa, beside Nigeria and South Africa.
The geographic location in the middle of Africa at the Equator makes Kenya a darling to regional and multinational firms looking at setting foot into Africa – with many multinationals using Nairobi as their base for foray into the rest of Africa
Kenya is a member of the East African Community and COMESA trade blocks – two regional blocks that cover most of the countries on the east coast of Africa.
