Thousands of both local and international investors are expected to attend the Baringo County investor conference dubbed Baringo Entrepreneurship and Expo Summit (BEES).

It will be held at the Kabarnet Show Grounds starting November 4 to 6 this year.

Investor Incentives

In a new campaign to publicize the County ahead of the great conference, the County Governor Benjamin Cheboi said that investors in Baringo will get lease land, access to water, and tax-friendly incentives to help them create jobs.

More Jobs Priority

He said the County will particularly encourage businesses that create jobs.

“My government seeks to nurture people-driven enterprises such as tourism ventures, honey and meat processing. We have built four slaughterhouses that are now ready for leasing to private investors, who will slaughter animals and package for the local and export market,” he said.

Minerals

Cheboi assured investors wishing to invest in the County of co-operation from all political leaders.

Already ruby, manganese and diatomite mineral deposits have been discovered in the county. The Geothermal Development Company is currently exploring how to harness 7,000MW of geothermal power at Silale belt.

Tullow Oil and Kengen are some of the big companies that have invested in Baringo.

The Governor said banditry and cattle rustling that have characterized the County have now been brought under control.
