Kenya assures Israel businesses of safety

20 June 2014, 10:05

Nairobi - The Cabinet Secretary for Foreign Affairs and International Trade, Amina Mohammed has assured Israel investors that the country is safe for business and investment despite recent terror attacks.

According to her, Kenya is “business friendly” and “reform minded.”

She said that the four-fold over-subscription of Kenya’s recent Euro bond issue was testimony of the confidence investors had in the East African country.

“Our two countries signed a bilateral air service agreement (BASA) which allows Kenya Airways to launch its inaugural flight to Tel Aviv by the end of 2014. I hope that El-Al Airlines will consider resuming flights to and from Nairobi in the near future,” said Mohammed in a statement read on her behalf by the Principal Secretary, Dr Karanja Kibicho.

The Cabinet Secretary said that she hoped that El-Al Airlines would consider resuming flights to and from Nairobi in the near future. She said that commencement of direct flights will boost trade and encourage growth in tourism and other sectors.

“Additionally, steps have been taken to reduce the cost of doing business, improve infrastructure and enhance security,” added Mohammed in her statement.

Karanja read the Cabinet Secretary’s statement during the occasion of the Kenya-Israeli business forum which was attended by the Israeli Deputy Prime Minister and Minister for Foreign Affairs, Avigdor Liberman and Israeli Ambassador to Kenya, Gil Haskel.
