We see this as an opportunity to build our internal capacity through exposure for our technical staff to best practises that can support the capital markets in facilitating economic transformation as espoused in the Capital Market Master Plan (2014-2023) which is aligned to Kenya’s Vision 2030 Economic Blueprint’’.
