Commenting on the results, the KPA Show Committee Chairman Mr. Peter Odera, attributed the good performance to teamwork, dedication and the Wajibika spirit of his team.
He said that the current Show theme, 'promoting innovation and technology in Agriculture and Trade' clearly fits the Authority's operations.
"Everyone needs to be innovative at his or her area of work with the aim of enhancing efficiency and ultimately cut the cost of doing business," he said.
KPA has been using various platforms including the ASK shows to highlight its services and milestones to the public. The Shows are also used to clarify misconceptions and magnify the visibility of the Authority's brand.
