Building Kenya's Special Economic Zones Regulations

Jean-Paul Gauthier with Polycarp Igathe, Chairman of SEZAK

One of Locus Economica's greatest values is the guidance we provide on legal and regulatory frameworks for special economic zones (SEZs). Locus and the World Bank have walked alongside the Kenyan government in its development of a new special economic zones law, regulations, and subsidiary instruments for the last few years. In March-April 2017, we continued this work by leading workshops on the formulation of supplemental regulations, which we drafted over the last year. We look forward to assisting the new Special Economic Zones Authority of Kenya (SEZAK) in the year ahead.
