The proposed Kilifi Eco Park is an undertaking of TradeMark East Africa (TMEA) in coordination with the Government of Kenya (GoK) to initiate Trade and Logistics Clusters (TLCs), in Kenya’s Coastal area. The strategy focuses on certain areas in the East African Community (EAC) that, based on their natural endowments, demographics and favourable locations have more comparative advantage to create jobs and growth, if certain binding constraints can be addressed such as low productivity, poor infrastructure and high costs of energy, poor access to markets, policy instability, non-harmonized regulations, and low-value addition. TMEA plans to ‘jump start’ growth in these pilot regions through a more coordinated partnership approach with the government and the private sector in tackling these constraints.
