President Kenyatta leaves for US-Africa Summit in Washington

04 August 2014, 08:19

 Nairobi - President Uhuru Kenyatta left the country on Sunday for the U.S. to attend a summit aimed at boosting trade ties.

A statement issued in Nairobi before his departure said Kenyatta will meet a select group of business people with investment proposals for Kenya at a forum convened by the two countries' chamber of commerce to attract external investment.

Kenyatta will attend the US-Africa Leaders' Summit to discuss sustainable development, investing in Africa's future, peace and security, said the statement.

Latest statistics from Kenya show that trade between the two countries reached 1.1 billion U.S. dollars by 2013, with Kenya exporting 451 million dollars, and importing 651 million dollars.

"Kenya's delegation will also push for a seamless renewal of AGOA for a further 15 years, and favourable resolution of issues pertaining to predictability, application of the Third Country Fabric Rule, eligibility and Rules of Origin to restore certainty to exporters," the statement said.
