According to a recent report from Kenya Ports Authority (KPA), Mombasa port has recorded an increase in the number of imported construction materials. KPA’s report suggests a strengthening of the local construction sector as import figures of the construction materials are increasing each week.

The report read, “The sector imported 59,866 metric tonnes of steel and 53,562 tonnes of cement clinker.” It went on to deduce that steel and clinker were the leading imports for the conventional cargo terminal. In the third week of July alone, the terminal handled 153,007t of cargo.
