Kenya offers Ukrainian producers to enter their market, as well as the market of the countries of the Center and South Africa.
According to the government’s press service, the proposal was voiced by Justin Muturi, Speaker of the National Assembly of the Republic of Kenya, during a meeting with Ukrainian Prime Minister Volodymyr Groysman.
“We are interested in developing bilateral relations, because there are a number of important economic opportunities that can be used. Now there are about $ 70 million turnover. It is not enough. Therefore, we are open to business. I invite the government delegation of Kenya to also visit Kyiv so that we can exchange opportunities. We are talking not only about export-import operations, but also about the functioning of a full-fledged Kenyan embassy in Kiev, as well as direct flight connections,” the premier stressed.
“I would like to thank for the invitation to visit Ukraine with an official visit. East Africa is a big market, and Kenya is the gateway to the East, to the Center and South of Africa. In addition, Kenya is tea, coffee and 40% of the flower market,” said Muturi, in turn.
It is also noted that this is the first visit of a Kenyan official to Ukraine and the first opportunity to discuss the details of cooperation between the two countries.
As reported by the “Journalist”, Parubiy called on Kenyan Parliament to recognize the Holodomor of 1932-1933 as a genocide of the Ukrainian people.
