Economic and Commercial Department

Business relations between Kenya and the Czech Republic have a long tradition and Kenya has always been an important trading partner in the East African region. Czech products have gained high reputation among professionals in Kenya. The lathe machines under the brand TOS are to be found in most of the workshops; the number of Czech made 18 seat passenger aircraft operating in Kenya is reaching 20 pieces. And perhaps not everybody is aware that the Bata company, currently a Canadian company who operates among others also in Limuru, was founded in the Czech countries as early as in 1894 by a local entrepreneur of the same name.

At present the Czech Republic as a highly developed industrial country can contribute to the development of the Kenyan economy in various fields, such as:

- Workshop equipment (lathes, tools, forklifts etc.)
- Agricultural, food processing and textile machinery
- Heavy engineering machinery, furnaces
- Steel products
- Construction industry
- Electricity generation and transmission
- Measuring and control systems
- Electrical and electric products
- Transport devices
- Chemical products, pesticides
- Glassware
- Lighting equipment, optics
- House appliances
- Hotel equipment, china, ceramics
- Medical, pharmaceutical and surgical materials
- Protective devices
- Packing machines, polygraph machines
