18 Apr - 21 Apr Kenya & Uganda

UN delegation to Kenya and Uganda

Business Sweden, in collaboration with the Embassy of Sweden in Kenya and Uganda and the Ministry for Foreign Affairs, invites you to participate in the official business delegation to Kenya and Uganda to meet with the United Nations (UN) and its implementing partners in the region.

East Africa is home to a wide range of humanitarian UN efforts and hosts two large procurement hubs in Entebbe and Nairobi. Operations vary from emergency relief to more permanent engagements, including the management of refugee camps. Due to unfortunate events related to crises such as refugee flows and environmental disasters, the demand for goods and services to meet local needs has increased over the last years and the trend is expected to last. The prolonged duration of many crisis scenarios places higher demands on UN budgets to procure for quality through life-cycle costing, a comparative strength of Swedish goods and services.

Despite state-of-the-arts offerings in products and services that match UN procurement needs, Swedish companies hold a surprisingly small share of its procurement globally, with only 0,16% of all procurement being invoiced by companies in Sweden.

Business opportunities within the following sectors:

Solutions from the following sector are of particular interest:

  • ICT
  • Energy
  • Transport WASH
  • Construction and Shelter
  • Waste Management
  • Pharmaceuticals
  • Medical devices and equipment
  • Food and nutrition

The four day program will comprise:

  • Visits to the UN offices in Nairobi and Entebbe
  • Business meetings with UN partners
  • Seminars on innovative solutions
  • Presentations of Swedish companies and solutions
  • B2B meetings
  • Field visit to Kakuma, a refugee camp in Northern Kenya
  • Introduction to a new model camp, Kalobeyei, planned to launch in June 2016 offering significant procurement opportunities.
