”Thanks for keeping us in our toes. Well, if you could clearly remember, my key challenge was improving market access for livestock and livestock products in Kenya. I would like to inform you that improment of market access locally and abroad is one of the flagship projects that this country target to achieve by 2030, which is our vision period. consequently, a lot of awareness has been created and a lot of government and   development partners suport  is being channeled on the same. It is against this background that my Ministry has been collaborating with International Research Institute  to  improve market performance by availing daily market prices for selected market. In the year we have targeted to connect 4 extra markets to the national grid.”
