IDS Working Paper 93

The Role of Buyers in the Development of the Hotel Furniture Industry in Kenya

Published on 1 January 1999

Most accounts of African industry portray sombre prospects for its ability to compete against foreign competition. Exceptions command attention.

This paper shows that Kenya’s leading hotels source 95% of their furniture from local manufacturers.  And it shows why and how the buyers, that is the hotels and their designers, helped these manufacturers to produce customised furniture to international quality requirements.
