The Chinese Embassy in Kenya is now calling on the government to intervene and protect Chinese enterprises and her citizens among the developing argument about the China Square.
The Embassy issued a statement last evening in which it noted that a conducive environment would bolster China-Kenya for the benefit of both countries. This is after Kenyan traders protested against the china square taking away their customers through cheaper selling of commodities at a large number.
Chinese nationals conducting business in the country have been further urged to operate within Kenyan laws and regulations. This is to ensure that there is a conducive environment to do business for both Kenyan traders and the Chinese traders.
This comes a day after China’s Director-General of the Department of African Affairs of the Foreign Ministry, Wu Peng, called for the creation of a non-arbitrary and non-discriminatory investment environment between the two nations.
China Square’s business model has been a matter of public discourse after Trade and Investment Cabinet Secretary Moses Kuria led small scale traders in Nairobi in claiming that Kenyan businesses are being forced to shut down due to unhealthy competition.
The retail shop which is located in Unicity Mall along Thika Superhighway has the most affordable items, according to Kenyans on social media; all you could want at cheaper prices.
