RISING DEMAND FOR DISPOSABLE DIAPERS IN KENYA
July 2, 2015 , by admin2
Kenya has witnessed a steady rise in demand for disposable diapers in recent years. About ten years ago, there were fewer brands of disposable diapers and they were meant for the high-end market. Despite their low cost then, they were still out of reach. Today, the use of disposable diapers has increased significantly. Most families with a minimum income of USD 200 per month can afford to buy disposable diapers and the use is no longer reserved for the well-to-do. The high demand for disposable diapers has created price wars and risen prices. This increase has been driven by intensive marketing campaigns on the benefits of the disposable diapers by various manufacturing companies. As manufacturers strive to gain from the growing sector, imitations are flocking the market. For example Sample diapers hope to ride on “Pamper’s” goodwill and success by incorporating P&G’s packaging and colours. According to a leading retailer, the market penetration of diapers has led to a...

Factory Visit 2
June 29, 2015 , by admin2
The other company, S.E.H (Shah Alam) Sdn. Bhd., a Japanese company with local participation, manufactures silicon polished wafers – one of the only four major producers of the product in the world. Since its inception in 1973, the company has invested RM2.8 billion in this business. Going down to the ground to get first-hand feedback is imperative in the formulation of policies and creation of conducive environment for industries to expand. The issue of natural gas supply, foreign labour policy and shortage of talents in the middle management level were some of the concerns highlighted during my visit. It is my priority now to review the current policies pertaining to investment to ensure Malaysia remains on investors’ radar.
