Speaking ahead of the 5th Economic Mkutano, Mr David Bikhado Ofungi, the curator of the Economic Mkutano, said focus will be centred on unlocking private sector opportunities from Green Economic Zones.
“The programme is designed around implementable learnings that speak directly to investment opportunities that investors can pivot into from a project development perspective,” he said, noting that the emerging green economy presents opportunities for the private sector to invest in sustainable growth.
