NAIVASHA DRY PORT TO SPUR GROWTH
The Naivasha dry port will attract both local and international investors and create employment opportunities among other benefits. The Principal Secretary in the Ministry of Environment and Forestry, Dr.Ibrahim Mohamed has observed.
Speaking during an inspection tour of the on-going fencing off of the 1,000 acre Naivasha Dry Port land, Dr. Mohamed noted that, the Dry Port will eliminate the cost linked to delays at the Mombasa Port and spur economic growth within the corridor.
The PS, who was accompanied by the Principal Secretary, State Department of Public Works, Prof. Paul Maringa said, the Ministry of Environment and Forestry, will ensure the Dry Port land is well conserved by planting trees, and called on the youth who have been engaged in the project to guard against pilfering of the construction materials, and at the same time co-exist as Kenyans.
A Dry Port is a Customs area, connected directly to a sea port by railway and road.
