Congratulations to 69 local staff for being promoted to managerial positions recently by Afristar, which is owned by our subsidiary CRBC and operates the Mombasa-Nairobi Standard Gauge Railway in Kenya.

The promotion is part of Afristar’s efforts to boost localization, encourage Kenyan employees to improve their professional skills and management capabilities, and give full play to the leading role of the outstanding employees.
