The Expo, organised by the Hindu Council of Kenya, attracts corporate organizations which showcase their innovative products and services to promote trade and social cultural harmony in the country.

The Hindu Council of Kenya chairman Mr. Nitin Malde said the forum created a platform for the organizations to interact, promote trade and exchange information on products and services they offer to the people.

“This meeting has also enabled us to form a special socio-cultural bond among members which was a historical milestone in Kenyan business perspective,” he added.

The Expo, a signature project of the council provides a unique opportunity to showcase products, culture and services on a single platform.

During the expo, fee medical checkups for visitors are provided. The Expo’s proceeds fund relief services, welfare, environmental projects, health awareness and education to the needy.
