KIPPRA is carrying out a study on the institutional and regulatory environment affecting the wholesale and retail trade in Kenya. Owing to its importance in contributing to the gross domestic product, the wholesale and retail is a priority sector expected to spur Kenyan economy towards attainment of Vision 2030. The institutional and regulatory framework under which the wholesale and retail sector operates, is critical in determining its contribution to the economy. This is more critical as the County Governments take shape since the Constitution gives counties the mandate of managing domestic trade.
In view of this, KIPPRA organized a roundtable on 5 April 2013, at Kenya School of Monetary Studies to gather views from the key ministries, institutions and other stakeholders with a bearing on domestic trade. Such views will be important in understanding current and past regulatory reforms as well the constraints and challenges facing the wholesale and retail trade in Kenya.
