Kenya exports strong despite EU tariffs

Despite paying higher tariff to access EU markets, the Kenyan horticulture sector registered growth in earnings for 2014. The EU is the country’s biggest export market, largest for the horticulture sector and accounts for 65-70% of the value of export earnings. The marginal growth represented a 0.8% increase. Delays by Kenya and the European Union to sign an Economic Partnership Agreement (EPA) in the last half of 2014, affected expected performance during the period. Fruits registered the most growth as it rose 20% and cut flowers registered a growth of 7% from 2013 figures. However, earnings from vegetables declined by 18%. Total export volumes grew by 10.5 % in 2014 from 2013, while fruits rose by 13% in the same period.
