Mombasa is the only large seaport in Kenya and therefore it is also a major centre for trade, export and transportation. In addition, the white beaches of Mombasa region attract plenty of business around tourism, entertainment, culinary and luxury. Finally, Mombasa offers several career opportunities in the traditional industries too, e.g. there is a large oil refinery and a cement factory near the city.
