The Uasin Gishu County Administration is making notable headway in the implementation of the County Aggregation and Industrial Parks (CAIPs) project. This initiative aims to bolster the agriculture and manufacturing sectors, fostering income generation, job creation, increased foreign exchange earnings, and poverty reduction.

Of particular significance is the advancement of the County Aggregation Industrial Park situated at the Agricultural Mechanisation Services (AMS) in Moiben. This project epitomizes the County’s commitment to transforming the region’s agriculture and trade landscape through strategic planning and execution.

The ongoing construction efforts have achieved significant milestones, including the completion of a sturdy perimeter wall, site excavation, and the establishment of foundation walling. Notably, progress on the construction of warehouses and cold storage facilities underscores the park’s dedication to state-of-the-art infrastructure.

Eng. Abraham Kiptalam, Chief Officer of Roads and Public Works, expressed his satisfaction with the progress during a visit to the construction site following a successful public participation exercise in Sergoit Ward. He lauded the collaborative efforts between the County and the National Government in bringing this transformative project to fruition.

Kiptalam reassured stakeholders that the construction is proceeding according to schedule, indicating that the industrial park is poised to become a catalyst for both small and large-scale farmers in Uasin Gishu. Upon completion, it will serve as a centralized hub for farmers to aggregate their produce, thereby facilitating access to local and international markets.

The County Aggregation Industrial Park symbolizes Uasin Gishu’s dedication to fostering economic growth and providing essential infrastructure to enhance community livelihoods. This initiative aligns closely with the government’s Bottom-up Economic Transformation Agenda, emphasizing the consolidation, processing, and value addition of agricultural products across all counties.
