by Old Mutual Securities

Our view: given that about 87% of Kenyan exports are exported to the EU markets, the introduction of the tariffs (ranging from 5-22%) will definitely lower the value of our exports.

According to the Kenya Association of Manufacturers, about 2 million jobs depend on Kenya’s preferential export terms with Europe.  Among the key exports, cut flowers attract tariffs of 8.5%, fish 6% while fruit juices from Kenya will cost 11.7% more on the European shelves.
