Kenyan Business Community Urged To Engage Parliament For Better Laws
Kenya's Senate Speaker Amason Kingi has advised the business community to constantly engage parliament and ensure laws enacted are friendly to businesses.
In the absence of such engagement, he noted that there is a likelihood that laws passed will not address the people's concerns.
"Through such engagements, we as the Senate shall harvest the technical knowledge that will enrich legislation and ensures issues of concerns are brought to the fore and addressed," said Speaker Kingi.
The Speaker made the remarks on Wednesday during a meeting with the leadership of the Kenya Private Sector Alliance (KEPSA) led by its chairperson Florah Mutahi.
The Alliance is the umbrella body of private sector actors, bringing together local and foreign business associations, federations, Chambers of commerce and professional bodies.
In the last ten years, the office of the Speaker of the Senate has organized a Speaker's round-table, a series of high-level institutional dialogue to deliberate on contentious issues and build working relationships across various stakeholder groups involved in devolution.©Standard Gazette, 2021.
