Business –Controversial shopping mall China Square has today resumed operations after a week long of closure.
In a Monday, March 6, statement seen by Homenews.co.ke, the shop’s management indicated that it had resolved its issues with authorities and that it was back to activities.
“Yes we have resumed today,” affirmed the shopping outlet.
The Kenya China Chamber of Commerce KCCC welcomed the move by the Kenyan Government to allow the Chinese traders to resume office.
“We welcome the good news on the resumption of operations of China Square. This follows several engagements between the Kenya Government and the Chinese Community in Kenya to reach an amicable solution to the stalemate,” the Chinese Chamber of Commerce stated.
The group termed the support the governments of Kenya was offering them as positive efforts towards China which remains a close ally of Kenya.
“Chinese businesses will contribute to Kenya’s growth and development efforts through employment creation and contribution to Kenya’s tax revenue,” the statement added.
China Square was forced to shut down a few days ago after a section of local traders accused it of unfair competition from China.
Nairobi traders would then pour on the streets demanding that the owners be asked to close business if they cannot go into production that brought them around.
Cabinet Secretary for Trade Moses Kuria was in support of the Kenyan traders.
