“The Homabay International Investment Conference will showcase the county’s competitive advantage, unveil bankable investment opportunities in the county and the lake region,” she said.

The conference themed “Unlocking the Bay of Endless Potential,” is projected to attract over 2000 delegates, agencies, businesses and exhibitors.

Speaking at the breakfast meeting, Council of Governors Chairperson Anne Waiguru welcomed Wanga’s pitch urging counties to “embrace change, innovation, and the endless possibilities that lie in the intersection of ideas and capital.”

Waiguru hailed the upcoming conference as a demonstration of commitment by sub-national governments to address pressing needs in local communities.

She termed climate-smart solutions as critical in ensuring economic growth at the grassroots.

Addressing partners who graced the event, Miano reiterated the government’s commitment to support investments in counties.
