Chinese businesses vow strict ethics, responsibility in Kenya

01 March 2016, 18:24

Nairobi (Xinhua) -- A major Chinese initiative to promote social, cultural and wildlife conservation cooperation with Kenya has been launched.

Under the theme: "Building A Good Image and Promoting Win-Win Cooperation", the initiative was jointly launched by the Chinese Embassy in Kenya and the Chinese Expatriates and Institutions in Kenya on Sunday.

The Chinese corporate leaders in Kenya vowed they would work together to ensure Chinese firms comply with strict business ethics and reject corruption or any forms of business ethics violations.

This programme also aimed to promote culture exchange between China and Kenya, said Gao Wei, the Vice Chairman of the China Council for the Promotion of Peaceful National Re-Unification in Kenya.

The initiative has six key goals, including promoting Chinese business values, enhancing efforts against drug abuse, gambling and pornography.

Kenyan officials at the launch of the initiative hailed the Chinese Embassy for convening the event, saying it will help accelerate the high-level cooperation between China and Kenya.

"This initiative will help Kenyan efforts in combating wildlife crimes, protecting elephants and conserving rhinos," said Charles Sunkuli, Principal Secretary at the Kenyan Ministry of Environment and Natural Resources.

The Chinese firms in Kenya reaffirmed their willingness to boycott wildlife products which fuel illegal trafficking.

The two sides also vowed to improve the protection of the environment, nature conservation, green and sustainable development in Kenya.

Sunkuli said Kenya is looking forward to more Chinese technology to be passed on to the Kenyan law enforcement agents to help the fight against wildlife crimes.

Meanwhile, business leaders from both sides agreed to work towards the achievement of the Kenyan government's economic blue-print, Vision 2030, which identifies mega-infrastructure projects to modernize the Kenyan roads and railway system.
