Kenya takes on Dubai in bid to host 21st World Chambers Congress

South Africa was the last African country to host the global congress nearly 13 years ago.

The country will be hopeful of shrugging off competition from three global cities including Dubai to host the major global forum which brings together top corporate executives and policymakers from more than 100 countries after every two years.

The chairman of the Nairobi Chapter of the KNCCI, Richard Ngatia said the institution is betting on Nairobi’s improved standing in hosting high-level international events as well as the promise of safari game drive.

“The delegates would be happy to learn that Kenya has the best facilities anyone could offer, plus a chance to take a safari holiday besides the congress,”said Ngatia.

KNCCI national chair Kiprono Kittony said the country has presented a powerful bid for Africa, with most African states having endorsed the bid, adding that the country is ready and able to host another major international conference.

"We believe we have put the best bid of the four presented as the mood was very bullish as Kenya was presenting indicating that our product was different and we hope the judges will allow Kenya and Africa to be the next host,” he said.

South Africa was the last African country to host the global congress nearly 13 years ago.

Kenya has in recent years hosted high profile international conferences such as World Trade Organisation (WTO) conference, the 14th session of the United Nations Conference on Trade and Development (UNCTAD 14) as well as the Tokyo International Conference on African Development (TICAD).
