It is the County Government's desire to ensure that Kenyans who left the continent in search for better opportunities and other foreigners with interest in exploring and seizing investment opportunities in Kenya could benefit from the unfolding opportunities created by the new political dispensation in Kenya.

The County Government of Homa Bay, therefore, acknowledges that the Diaspora would be a reliable bridge between Kenya and the rest of the world in terms of investment and trade promotion. The Diaspora could further strengthen these linkages by collaborating with local companies to expand their operations into Kenya. These companies would then act as vehicles for innovation, knowledge and technology transfer and exchange which would ultimately be good for the country's development.

The County Government is looking for partnerships such as: Joint Ventures; Angel Investors, Asset Financing, Concessional Agreements, Public Private Partnerships (PPPs), Co-operatives, Investment Groups; Individual entrepreneurs; Contract Financing; Procurement – LPO Financing, Microfinance and Credit, and Venture Capital.
