Over the past few months the prices of used cars and electronic goods have risen as the Dubai world financial situation gets worse. This has a spiraled effect on other economies like Kenya which depends heavily on this rich Arab nation. For instance the increase in price of second hand cars from Dubai means less Kenyans can afford this leading to un-utilized capacity. It has been estimated that close to ten thousand Kenyans live and work in the UAE. Trade relations between the two countries have increased over the years with a lot of Kenyans now regularly traveling to UAE to buy household items, automobile spare parts and office appliances.
