Business Advocacy Fund (BAF) holds a Breakfast media roundtable on business partnership in Kenya

Business Advocacy Fund in conjunction with the African Woman and Child Feature Service and the Kenya Editor’s Guild held a breakfast meeting on Wednesday 14th 2012 at Intercontinental Hotel

The aim of the breakfast was to have a roundtable discussion with the journalists and business writers on the status of business journalism in Kenya and together agree on a set of initiatives which the Business Advocacy Fund might support to enhance business journalism in Kenya and also help the skills of journalists reporting on business environment issues and how they affect overall development and also the realization of Vision 2030.

Launched in 2006, the Business Advocacy Fund is working to enable a wide range of private sector business membership organizations (BMOs), trade unions, civil society organizations (CSOs), non-governmental organizations (NGOs), research organizations and others to engage with the government in processes leading to a sustainable improvement in the business environment in Kenya-- thereby creating jobs and economic growth needed to reduce poverty.

The meeting was addressed by Mr. Richard Muteti, CEO in the MSE Sector in Kenya who is also the Regional Project Manager of the East Africa Jua Kali Exhibitions and a senior representative from KEPSA and Clive Davis- the CEO of Business Advocacy Fund.
