Kenya, US ink deals worth $100 million
Kenya Government officials led by President Uhuru Kenyatta have negotiated deals worth 1$00 million at the US-Kenya conference in Nairobi.
The 60-member American delegation to the bilateral conference which is organised by the US Chamber of Commerce is led by the US Under-Secretary for Commerce Gilbert Kaplan and is aimed at interrogating President Kenyatta's big 4 development agenda for investment opportunities.
Speaking during the official opening of the conference this morning, President Kenyatta who was accompanied by several cabinet secretaries and high ranking government bureaucrats, challenged the American and Kenyan private sector to take advantage of the opportunities presented by his big 4 development blueprint to invest in the country.
President Kenyatta particularly outlined the immense opportunities that exist in manufacturing, food and nutrition, affordable housing and provision of universal health care-the four areas at the core of the president's second term in office.
"Given our long and well-established relationship, we can do more together. I invite the US Companies to walk with us on the big 4 journey," President Kenyatta said.
