THE FINANCIAL REPORTING SEMINAR FOR MARITIME & LOGISTICS SECTOR
The Maritime and Logistics Sector is wide and encompasses industries dealing with road, rail and air. These play a crucial role in the country’s economy as they determine the ease of flow of commodities for trade such as energy, mineral resources, food resources among other key economic products. The effectiveness and efficiency of this sector has the capacity to integrate a country’s businesses into the global scene and significantly impact the economy.
The Kenya government targets to grow the country’s manufacturing sector to 15% of GDP by 2022, an ambitious target that can nevertheless be realized with the streamlining of the maritime and logistics sector. For instance, the ports can facilitate the movement of commodities for export both regionally and internationally while allowing in raw materials for use in manufacturing quality products for local consumption. Rail, particularly the SGR, can further reinforce the efficient and affordable movement of commodities within the country, opening markets and supplying input for manufacturing.
Like many other significant sectors, maritime and logistics landscape is dynamic; presenting both opportunities and challenges. Notable recent events in the sector includes the disruptions resulting from SGR, rise of competition from neighboring Tanzania, implementation of a 20% withholding tax on demurrage charges to foreign organizations, complexities in licensing procedures and persistent counterfeit and illicit trade, among others.
On the backdrop of challenging economic times, the Financial Reporting Seminar for Maritime & Logistics Sector will seek to provide delegates with a platform for exchange of ideas as well as engagement with industry experts towards improved performance. Some of the topics that will be covered are:
