1 NAIROBI INDUSTRIAL AND TECHNOLOGY PARK A VISION 2030 MANUFACTURING SECTOR FLAGSHIP PROJECT OF THE MINISTRY OF INDUSTRIALIZATION, THE JOMO KENYATTA UNIVERSITY OF AGRICULTURE AND TECHNOLOGY AND THE PRIVATE SECTORDr. Fred Mugambi MwirigiEng. B KariukiJKUAT
2 IntroductionKenya’s Vision 2030 recognizes SME Industrial and Technology Parks as important vehicles through which the growth Kenya’s manufacturing sector can be fast-trackedIndustrial and Technology parks are key elements of the infrastructure supporting the growth of today’s global knowledge economy.By providing a location in which government, private sector and universities cooperate these parks create environments that foster collaboration and innovation.
3 Justification There is huge brain power in Kenya We need to develop Parks that can be used to incubate technology in this countryThat way the divide that exists between academia and industry will be bridgedThe country will also harness the brain power of its population, transform this power to finished products and broaden its export pool
5 Examples around the World China has over 80 Industrial Parks with some hosting as many as 200 companies. Many are owned by universitiesBrazil has over 50 Industrial ParksEgypt has over 15 Parks (UNDP support)Czech Republic has over 30 business incubation parksIn Taiwan Hsinchu Science Based Industrial Park has over 180 high-tech companiesIn Singapore the Singapore Science Park occupies 270,000 sq. m floor space and has over 200 tenant companiesSilicon Valley is an example of a successful Technology ParkIndia has become a hub for computing for the rest of the world through technology parks
6 Park Strategic Objectives To facilitate transfer of technology and promote local knowledge-based enterprisesTo create an environment for inventiveness and innovativenessTo stimulate and manage the flow of knowledge and technology amongst university, R&D institutions, companies and marketsTo provide other value added services together with high quality space and servicesTo translate Government policies into sectoral strategies and action plans
7 Priority Sectors Agro-processing Agro-machinery Electric and electronicsMetalBio-technologyICTPackaging
