The Kenya Trade Network Agency (KenTrade) has announced plans to simplify trade procedures for Avocado and Fish in the current financial year 21/22 to lower administrative burden costs for traders.

Kenya mainly imports frozen tilapia, frozen mackerels, sardines, prawns and salmon, while the country exports frozen Nile perch, tuna, octopus, whole tilapia and lobsters notably to the European  Union.

On the other hand, avocado has been a significant contributor to the earnings in the horticulture sector. Last  Year, Kenya topped Africa’s avocado exports and was among the world’s top 10 producers. Avocado farmers earned Sh14.48 billion between January to November 2021.

KenTrade is in partnership with GIZ in this simplification exercise.…
