Kenyan government proposes a new “Leather City”

The Kenyan government has announced plans to establish a Leather City, a fully-fledged product development facility in Athi River, a town outside capital Nairobi, that will be the first of its kind in the country. The industrial park will be set on 500 acres of land that has been identified in eastern Kenya, which the government is optimistic could generate 10 times the current value of exported raw materials and leather to achieve US1.09 billion in 18 months.
