Dongo Kundu is located in Mombasa County in Dongo Kundu. The SEZ is approximately 3000 Acres along the Kenyan coast. The SEZ is being developed with support from the Japanese Government. The master plan which was finalized in December 2015 by JICA consists of land use plan, implementation framework, investment plan, and environmental consideration. Ongoing design and development of off-site infrastructure (port, Mombasa Southern By-Pass, access road, power transmission, water supply, and drainage system) are funded through a concession loan and grant aid from the Japanese government. Mombasa was chosen because of its strategic location and potential for further development. The place is highly competitive in terms of logistics and facilities, endowed with a port, highways, railways (both SGR and MGR) and an airport. Connectivity is definitely the core strength of the Dongo Kundu SEZ as it connects to EAC countries and the rest of the world in the shortest route possible. Dongo Kundu SEZ presents an all-inclusive well-organized and multi-function environment. Based on well-thought technical considerations, the land is allocated to various SEZ functions in order to maximize its potential.
The SEZ will offer a Free Port and Free Trade Zone featuring the simple and speedy one-stop custom processing required of duty-free commodity and machinery trading hub.
The Industrial park provides integrated infrastructure to facilitate the needs of manufacturing and processing industries. This area brings the dawn of industrialization in Kenya.
The land piece has a potential to invite tourist from all over the world. New compound facilities for meetings, incentive tours, conventions and exhibitions and exciting events attract both domestic and international tourists all year around.
The port is intended to be the biggest port in East Africa, the freight trading within the SEZ will be even more efficient with this integrated development.
