Britain’s Foreign Secretary Jeremy Hunt to Visit Kenya for Trade Links Talk

Peter Musila 2 years ago

Britain’s Foreign Secretary Jeremy Hunt is set to jet in the country Friday.

During this five-nation five-day tour of Africa, he will be pushing for the post-Brexit trade links with Sub-Saharan Africa as he supports the Brexit.

The visit aims at convincing the African countries on expected better trade deals from Brexit than before.

The UK has been working to establish trade deals in Africa the visit by the Prime Minister Theresa May last year.

Mr Hunt said: “Africa is a continent growing at an extraordinary rate, full of transformative potential. In a future where Britain is no longer a member of the EU, I want us to work within and alongside African nations to make sure, together, we combat the threats we all face and capitalise on the opportunities open to people wherever they live. To do this, I want to set out the stall for the UK to be the new partner of choice across Africa.”

However, Hunt faces a significant challenge back at home as his party is showing great rift over the action to follow next after Brexit having in mind that May’s proposal for Brexit deal has been defeated three times now.

Hunt will be visiting Senegal, Ghana, Nigeria, Ethiopia and Kenya as they are the countries with the fastest growing economies in Africa for talks on how Brexit will boost trade.

Other agendas in Hunts’ discussion list include the persecution of Christians, developing media freedom as a bulwark for nascent democracies and the link between climate change and threats to security, and mass migration.
