President William Ruto has said the Government will create a conducive environment for the manufacturing sector to flourish.
He said the Government will invest in value addition and agro-processing that have the potential of creating jobs for millions of youth.
The President said there was no reason why Kenya should sell 95 per cent of its tea in raw form.
He also challenged manufacturers to fill the gap and inject value in agricultural products to allow farmers earn more.
President Ruto made the remarks on Wednesday during the Kenya Manufacturing 20 by 30 Initiative High Level Meeting at Serena Hotel in Nairobi County.
He said his government will ensure that there is a predictable tax regime that supports business and not stiffling.
