President Uhuru to Lead Delegation to Shanghai Import Expo

Author 3 years ago

By Moses Adongo

President Uhuru Kenyatta is next month, expected to lead a high-profile delegation of horticultural farmers and traders to China for the first Shanghai Import Expo where many trades deals are supposed to be sealed.

In the list of expected deals to be reached are the Sanitary and Phytosanitary agreement between China and Kenya that is set to open the broad Chines market for Kenya’s fresh produce like mangoes, avocado, stevia, and cashew nuts.

The trip is also expected to deliver a trade negotiation working group that will be mandated to negotiate trade tariffs particularly for coffee and tea exports to the Chines market and also find more markets for Kenya’s cash crops.

The President’s planned visit to China was revealed during a cabinet meeting that approved the merger of Export Promotion Council and the Brand Kenya into Kenya Export Promotion and Branding Agency (KEPROBA).

The merger was in line with a previous President Uhuru’s directive on the critical objective of the integrated National Exports Development and Promotion Strategy (NEDPS) that aims to grow the country’s exports at 25% per annum.

The formation of KEPROBA is intended to eliminate duplication as part of the government’s austerity measures while also ensuring that it covers all local, regional and international trade promotions and branding activities.

During the same meeting, the cabinet also approved a Memorandum by the National Treasury allowing the set-up of Issuance of Government Support Measures. The framework will ensure that meaning, treatment, and forms of Government Support Measures are standardized.

The framework will also ensure that Private Public Partnerships are embraced as a way of funding and delivering, particularly, off-budget government projects across the country.
