Kenya, Chile to sign MOU, eye bilateral ties

26 June 2014, 11:46

Nairobi - Kenya and Chile are set to sign a Memorandum of Understanding on cooperation in the area of sports by the end of 2014, Chile's envoy to Kenya said on Wednesday.

Ambassador Konrad Paulsen told Xinhua in Nairobi that Chile hopes to learn from Kenya's world class long distance athletes.

"We would like Chilean athletes to train in the country's athletic," Paulsen said on the sidelines of the United Nations Environment Assembly (UNEA) underway in Nairobi.

The East African nation has dominated the long distance track events globally for the past two decades.

"We are hoping for a visit by a high ranking Kenya government in Chile so that awareness is created of the importance of bilateral relations," he said. Both nations are also poised on signing a series of pacts by the end of the year.

Paulsen noted that Chile has signed over 56 free trade agreements throughout the world and charges a uniform rate of three percent tax on all imports expect for luxury goods.
