Kemya : Flower farmers could face new EU tax
The matter arose during a meeting between governors and the Kenya flower council in a Naivasha hotel. The governors were told that over 500,000 jobs were at stake while the flower farmers could face a new tax of between eight to twelve per cent in the E.U market, a move that would lock out many farmers from flower farming.
Addressing the press, Bomet governor Isaac Ruto warned that the country market share in the E.U was at risk due to the ongoing impasse. On her part, the chief executive officer KFC Jane Ngige noted that if the agreement was not signed the flower growing sector in the country would decline. The agreement also affects products such as coffee, fish, fresh fruit and vegetables.
