The Northern Corridor Stakeholders Consultative Forum was initially introduced as a Kenya Ports Authority initiative to facilitate the delivery of Uganda cargo imported through the Port of Mombasa.
The Forum, which was initially a Kenya-Uganda affair, progressively evolved into a regional gathering bringing together Chief Executives of Public and Private sector institutions involved in transport and trade related activities in the Northern Corridor region.
The Stakeholders Forum, which is currently chaired by the Commissioner-General of the Kenya Revenue Authority, brings together other Commissioner-Generals of the member states – Burundi, the Democratic Republic of Congo, Kenya, Rwanda, and Uganda - the Managing Director of the Kenya Ports Authority as well as other Managing Directors of the Lake Ports and other dry ports established in the member states, including the Port of Bujumbura, Burundi, MAGERWA in Kigali, Rwanda.
It also includes the Chairmen of the Transporters Associations in each of the member states; the Chairmen of the Clearing and Forwarding Associations in each member state; the Chairmen of the Manufacturers Associations; Insurance Associations; Associations of commercial banks financing import/export operations; police departments involved in the supervision and escort of transit cargo; representatives of the chambers of commerce of the member states, as well as many other operators involved in transit transport activities along the Northern Corridor.
