Damei Investment of China and Kenya's Zuri Group Global announced on Wednesday that they will partner to build a "friendship city" in the east African nation.
By Xinhua Published : March 21, 2019
Jiannan Bao, director of Damei Investment, told Xinhua in Nairobi that construction of the proposed "friendship city," which will be located in the outskirts of capital city Nairobi, will begin before the end of 2019.
Bobby Kamani, managing director of Zuri Group Global, said that the "friendship city" is a comprehensive Special Economic Zone (SEZ) and Township, covering an area of 1,200 acres with five separate functional parks.
The project will lead to an initial foreign direct investment into Kenya of about 200 billion shilling (2 billion U.S. dollars), with a potential of up to 7.5 billion dollars by the time the entire development is complete, Kamani told the Wuxi-Kenya Business Forum.
The forum was organized by International Trade Center's Partnership for Investment and Growth in Africa and the Kenya Investment Authority, and co-organized by Jiangsu Business Development Association Kenya.
Business people from Wuxi city, in southern China's Jiangsu Province, who are seeking investment opportunities in Kenya, attended the gathering.
Kamani said the "friendship city" could potentially create 150,000 jobs directly and 500,000 jobs indirectly. He noted the major selling point of SEZs in Kenya is the tax shields offered within the confines of an SEZ. "Licensed SEZ enterprises, developers and operators benefit from various tax rebates such as exemption from excise duty, customs duty, value added tax and stamp duty, advantageous corporate income tax rates and preferential withholding tax rates," Kamani said.
With a raft of tax and non-tax benefits, he said, it is expected that the SEZ will not only attract foreign investors such as those from China, but also lure local industry players who will be afforded an opportunity to competitively access international markets.

Kila kitu ni Nairobi, miradi yote ya serikali ni Nairobi tu, projects zote na foreign investments zote destined in Nairobi.

Ndio maana njaa inaua counties za pembezoni mnasema huko sio Kenya, okay now I know Kenya ni Nairobi
 
Povu isikumaluze., will kill you further na miradi za mashinani utasema sio ukweli kama kawaida yenyu., tulia ikuingie hadi ndani kwa matumbo.,
North Eastern loading..., with Ethiopia on board, lapsset loading..., Nakuru county loading...., mtashangaaa!

Japo nako Turkana kuendelezwe kidogo.

No wonder Tanzanians are the unhappiest elements in this region while Kenya is the happiest. Happiness plays a great role in the life of a person.This explains the high life expectancy in Kenya despite all the adversities
@REEDEMER,eliakeem endeleeni kujenga chuki, mtazidi kujengewa hospitali za maradhi ya ubongo na moyo.
 
DUUU kuna tofauti KUBWA SANA ya mgawanyo wa raslimali za NCHI.
Yeah na ndio maana Tanzania mikoa yote ipo na standardised development talk about electricity, water supply, roads, hospitals, education almost every region they are well off lakini Kenya ukitoka Nairobi kwenda Kitale ni kama umetoka peponi kwenda jehanam

That's why kila mkenya kwenye counties ana ndoto siku moja kufika Nairobi ni kama miaka ya nyuma watanzania kufika South Africa, kuna gap kubwa sana kati ya Nairobi and the rest of Kenya
 
Tanzania sisi miradi mikubwa hata haipo Dar, chukulia Uganda pipeline, stiglierz gorge, sgr (destined to dodoma), natural gas project, and so forth lakini Kenya miradi yote ipo Nairobi
Trying to swim in the unknown waters. So you pretend to be knowing Kenya more than we do?. Go search the following "salgaa area experiencing economical boom", come back and tell me if it's nowhere near Nairobi.

1200 square acres is not really a city to shout about but let call by its name SEZ.

Plan for150,000 jobs, raising to 500,000 and 7.5 bns usd worth of investments, forward looking business friendly tax regime are impressive achievements by any measures. But corruptions ll be key issue as usual.
 
This is a private investment, corruption wapi., haiwezekani., this is as good as done., hii ni Kenya on turbo charge, economy on steroids.,

Enyewe wewe ni mujinga tupu, people are leaving Nairobi to mashinani, or outskirts., sio kama nyie mumejazana Dar, population kubwa ya maskini, watu wanaranda randa mjini na kuzubaa kwenye beach., mashinani balaa!!., Tuko na majimbo yani mfumo wa ugatuzi, hapa hamtufikii, pengine mubadili mfumo ama mtindo wa utawala;
"..a fool, like Tanzania, does the same things again and again, expecting different results.." CCM haitowakomboa kamwe!!
Yeah na ndio maana Tanzania mikoa yote ipo na standardised development talk about electricity, water supply, roads, hospitals, education almost every region they are well off lakini Kenya ukitoka Nairobi kwenda Kitale ni kama umetoka peponi kwenda jehanam

That's why kila mkenya kwenye counties ana ndoto siku moja kufika Nairobi ni kama miaka ya nyuma watanzania kufika South Africa, kuna gap kubwa sana kati ya Nairobi and the rest of Kenya
