As a country, we must gear towards the waters where there are resources and job opportunities. Our economic growth will be enhanced by unlocking the potential within the Blue Economy To unlock that potential, we need human capital that is well skilled.
The focus therefore is to grow a Maritime Education and Training Scheme which will finally grow into a revolving fund to ensure we have funds available for Kenyans seeking to train in the Maritime Sector.
KMA has committed to contribute Kshs. 100Million towards this Fund over the next couple of years.
Our anticipation is that other partners in this sector whether in the public or private sector will join us to finance that scheme and provided the much-needed funding because Maritime Courses are very expensive.
