His Excellency Governor (Dr.) Moses Kiarie Badilisha earlier today toured the Gulf Center Cosmetics Manufacturing LLC (GCCM) factory in Abu Dhabi as part of his continuing engagement with potential investors.
GCCM manufactures a wide range of skin, oral, hair, and beauty care products and cosmetics, many of them household brands in Kenya.
The factory’s tour culminated in a meeting with the Founder and Chairman of the Economic Group Holdings (EGH), His Highness Shaik Majid Hamad Al Qasimi. The EGH is a family-owned global conglomerate with over 80 branches spread across the world in areas of transport and auto solutions, manufacturing, real estate development, travel, tourism and hospitality, agriculture, ICT and management solutions, healthcare, sports and medical assistance interventions, among others.
Governor Badilisha continued to promote and foregrounded Nyandarua’s investment opportunities and potential – especially in agro processing, tourism, energy and water solutions – an engagement which was positively received by the hosts.
In his remarks, His Highness Qassim expressed his gratitude for the Governor’s visit with his team, and expressed great interest in investing in Nyandarua county. He committed to have an advance team visit and explore these opportunities and develop modalities of deeper engagement which will see him make a visit to the county.
Present in the meeting was the Kenya’s Ambassador to the UAE, H.E Kariuki Mugwe and his staff at the embassy, a team of CECMs, and notable businesspersons from Nyandarua County.
Later in the Day, the County Head held a meeting with Mohammad Lootah, the President and CEO of Dubai Chambers, together with the forum’s leadership. Governor Badilisha presented Nyandarua county’s available investment opportunities in the areas of agriculture and cold chain management, health and medical tourism, renewable energy, and water. The Governor welcomed a delegation of the business community, who are members of the Dubai Chambers, to explore these opportunities in their planned trade mission to Kenya later in the year.
