Ed­u­cate Kenyans on ben­e­fits of con­fer­ence tourism

The Star (Kenya) - - Voices -

Kenya re­cently hosted the TICAD IV con­fer­ence. For­eign Af­fairs CS Amina Mo­hamed said the meet in­jected close to Sh12 bil­lion into the econ­omy. Not many peo­ple seem con­vinced such con­fer­ences are fi­nan­cially ben­e­fi­cial to them. The feel­ing on the ground is that th­ese meet­ings are for the elite. The rel­e­vant agen­cies should en­gage the pub­lic, the av­er­age mama mboga, on the aims and ben­e­fits of th­ese meet­ings. The coun­ties should be en­gaged to dis­sem­i­nate in­for­ma­tion about con­fer­ence tourism to peo­ple at the grass­roots level.
