KEAMSCO is an international consulting and management services group with offices in Nairobi, Bremen (Germany) and New York (www.KEAMSCO.com). With our partner and the East African Business Council we are working on organizing « The Global East African Business Week and Investment Summit » to be held in Nairobi October 10-15, 2016. Our focus will be on ICT in the five East African countries Burundi, Kenya, Rwanda, Uganda and Tanzania.

EAC region has prioritized usage and application of ICT related tools and applications, in both the public and private sector. Partner States have been investing in ICT infrastructure to promote connectivity and reduce related costs thereof and the necessary harmonization of regulations governing the sector is taking place. The growing use of internet in the EAC offers opportunity for investment in internet related hardware and software; in provision of value added services (VAS) in imaging products, teleconferencing, data capture and processing, call centers for both inbound and outbound calls; wide range of Business Process Outsourcing activities; Education and Training; and ICT Habitat among others. E-business is still an area relatively young amongst the EAC Partner States, thereby underscoring its potential. The above are just a few of the existing opportunities. Business to business match making and visits to the market will enable you investigate the opportunities further.
