Abstract
This field study is made to analyse possible spillover effects on domestic export companies within the Export Processing Zones in Kenya. More specifically this paper aims to investigate if, how much and through which ways potential spillover effect impinge upon the companies in question. The specific spillovers investigated are imitation, skill acquisition, competition and export. The analysis shows presence of several of these channels and they seem to have an impact on the domestic companies. Result is though rather vague, since experiences are spread in a wide range and the respondents are operating in a variety of sectors. In all, spillover is an issue recognised and kept in mind by several domestic EPZ companies in Kenya.
