“As new businesses are coming up and we see emergence of a lot of innovations, we need the laws that govern business to also be as dynamic as the business environment itself.

“That is why we welcome the idea of reviewing the CAMA law and bringing it up to date with the legislature to have a positive development on business.

“The private sector had a lot of inputs in the review process because there was collaboration between the private sector and the National Assembly.

“The bill when signed into law, I believe that it will impact significantly and positively on the investment environment, ‘’ he said.
