As part of the efforts to build and cement working relationship with its investors, the County Government of Kericho has this morning hosted the management of James Finlay Kenya Ltd.
The Finlay's team led by its Managing Director, Simeon Hutchinson and flanked by his Corporate Affairs Manager, Mr.Sammy Kirui, held a lengthy consultative meeting with H.E. Governor, Dr. Eric Mutai, on areas of mutual interest in coming up with a win- win situation on the whole idea of tea plucking mechanization as well as enhancing of Corporate Social Responsibility.
While assuring the multinational company of his government's support, the Governor urged them to think outside the box by resting the big tea plucking machines and instead use the handheld ones so that more people get employed in the sector.
Finlay on its hand cited international law challenges on the optimization of the mechanization program but assured the Governor that the company will consult further and revert soon.
