Singapore scouts for trade, investment opportunities in Kenya

14 June 2014, 10:08

Nairobi - Singapore has expressed keen interest to explore trade and investment opportunities in Kenya as the two countries seek to boost bilateral relations.

Singapore Senior Minister of State for Foreign Affairs Masagos Zulkifli who held talks with officials from the Kenya Trade Network Agency (KenTrade) said his government had initiated talks on how the airlines of the two countries can make direct passenger and cargo flights to promote trade and investments.


"I have asked my Kenyan counterpart Amina Mohammed how we can make substantive agreement between the two countries so that investments can flow both ways between Kenya and Singapore," he said in a statement issued here on Friday. While in Nairobi, Masagos met the Kenyan Cabinet Secretary for Foreign Affairs and International Trade Amina Mohamed and Cabinet Secretary for Industrialization and Enterprise Development Adan Mohamed.


Both sides exchanged views on ways to strengthen relations and increase cooperation between Singapore and Kenya, particularly in areas such as air connectivity, tourism, businesses as well as people-to-people linkages. The visit is part of Singapore's efforts to engage the two largest economies within the East African Community where Singapore's economic interests have been growing.
