THE KENYAN FLOWER TRADE

Kenya is the fourth largest producer of cut flowers in the world. I did, however, not see many flowers in Kenyan homes and interiors during my research visit in Nairobi. Almost all flowers are exported to the European Union and the United Kingdom. (So strange to finally be able to write this. It's 31 January and Brexit is finally happening tonight...)

Afronomicslaw.org, the online platform for all things related to African trade law, has just posted my update on the importance of the trade relations with the EU for the Kenyan floriculture industry.

I have previously been interviewed by David Whitehouse on the impact of Brexit on this industry. This interview has been published in the Paris-based political magazine Africa Report. I was very happy to find out that the UN African Trade Policy Centre recommended this article in their Weekly Digest. — January 2020
