This also refers to the Delegation of German Industry and Commerce for Eastern Africa (AHK Eastern Africa) as well as the commercial entity AHK Services Eastern Africa Ltd. However, in good conscience and in line with the directives of the Kenyan government concerning international travel and public safety, we have restructured our working procedure to reduce risks.

We are presently working remotely but available and responsive on email via our contacts. However, we will also be intermittently available at our office in Westpark Suites, Ojijo Road, Parklands during working hours.  Best to contact us for GBA issues via email at This email address is being protected from spambots.

Unfortunately, many of our upcoming events have been cancelled or are being postponed to follow the regulations by the Kenyan government to allow for ample time for control of the spread of the virus. Affected parties have been swiftly communicated to and will be alerted of new dates in due time.  The business services offered by AHK are still available, especially those including research, market studies, business partner searches and the like.
