The Trade Council

The Trade Council creates value, growth and knowledge for Denmark through global consulting services. Think of us as your local partner in the Kenyan market.

Operating out of the Danish Embassy in Nairobi, we have a strong local presence and large networks in the local business and government communities. We assist Danish companies in entering and expanding on the Kenyan market, tailoring every task to your needs and the local conditions.

Local Expertise: Market intelligence, partner searches, guidance on regulations and business strategy
Sales Support: Identify and target priority segments and clients
Access: Strong connections to businesses, industry networks and authorities
Presence: Immediate, hands-on problem solving
Organizing: Visit planning and logistics, making sure you spend time on the core business

Doing business in Kenya is not easy. In short, the Trade Council lowers the cost and mitigates the risks of entering this important East African market.

Our services are available at 995 DKK an hour (2019 rate). Contact us for an initial conversation and we’ll work from there. Companies can browse the support opportunities available through The Trade Council at, a platform for all export-related public support mechanisms (in Danish).
