Kenya, Turkey to ink deals to enhance bilateral ties

07 April 2014, 08:02

Nairobi - Kenya and Turkey will sign several bilateral agreements to boost cooperation during President Uhuru Kenyatta's three-day visit starting Tuesday.

A statement from the ministry of foreign affairs said the agreements which were agreed during a meeting of technical teams in Ankara late Saturday identified priority areas as trade, industrialization, transport, agriculture, tourism, education, health, immigration, science and technology, and development of arid lands.

Kenya's Director of Europe and the Commonwealth in the Ministry of Foreign affairs and International Trade, Lazarus Amayo, said Kenya was seeking to benefit from Turkey's experience as a newly industrialized country.

Turkey's deputy Director for Trade and Agreements from the Ministry of Economy Gulendam Muge Varol Ilicak said her country was ready and willing to cooperate with Kenya without any reservations.

According to the Turkish embassy in Kenya, Turkey exported goods worth 138 million U.S. dollars to the east African nation in 2012.
