Nairobi - President Uhuru Kenyatta will travel to the United States and spend one week there, State House has announced.

During the visit, President Kenyatta will attend the 2015 Milken Institute Global Conference in Los Angeles. The Milken Institute is non-profit, economic think tank whose scholars publish research papers and conduct annual conferences on global and regional economies, human capital, demographics and capital markets.

This year’s Conference – which will run from April 26 to 29 – brings together intellectuals and world leaders to explore solutions to challenges in financial markets, industry, health, government and education. The Conference aspires to increase global empowerment by advancing collaborative solutions in capital, creation of employment and improved health through independent, data-driven research and innovative policy initiatives.

At the conference, the President will also highlight Kenya’s position as one of the fastest growing economies and an attractive foreign investment destination. Increased partnerships and foreign investment are some of the key areas of interest to Kenya. The Conference is expected to provide platform for networking and strengthen ties in various areas of cooperation.

During the Conference and the sideline meetings, Kenya will seek to attract private investment in the country’s booming infrastructure sector including: Telecommunication, energy, transport and other related infrastructure development areas.

The President will meet a host of leading American investors to discuss investment opportunities in Kenya.

President Kenyatta will address the investment climate in Kenya and expound on what the Government is doing to enhance local economy, attract foreign business and capital in key growth-driven areas.

With an estimated population of one million Kenyans living in the US, the conference will be an opportunity to fortify Diaspora investment in Kenya and the overall vision of a broader cooperation in economic and social partnership in development.
