Kenya Local Content Exchange III: Real-world Approaches and Strategies for Private Sector-led Enterprise Development - Extractives Baraza

The Petroleum Business Opportunities (PBO) project, which is funded by UKAID and executed by the World Bank Group, is hosting a three-part series of events called “The Kenya Local Content Exchanges” to support the creation of a robust local content discussion that supports economic development in Kenya.

The first two Local Content Exchange meetings were held in July and December in 2017 drawing nearly 80 high-caliber participants from public and private sectors and civil society. The first roundtable discussion focused on Kenya’s local content positioning to achieve sustainable development. The second session was more private sector-oriented and presented real-world examples of local content in the Kenyan Oil & Gas supply chain.
The session started with a presentation by keynote speaker Christopher MacDonald, a supply chain management specialist and experienced leader in developing local content strategy for the private sector. During his 36-year tenure with Shell International, Mr. MacDonald was instrumental in developing local content strategies for contracting, procurement and human resources while on residential assignments in multiple countries including: Brunei, Egypt, Tunisia, the Netherlands, Gabon, Bangladesh, Norway, Kazakhstan and Russia.
Following Mr. MacDonald’s presentation, the facilitator Eng. James Mwangi, guided an interactive discussion involving all participants. Eng. Mwangi is Chair of the Energy Committee at the Kenya Private Sector Alliance (KEPSA) and CEO of Kurrent Technologies. Eng. Mwangi has over twenty years of experience in the oil and gas industry, both in Kenya and internationally.
