Uhuru wooes European investors

03 April 2014, 18:10

Nairobi - President Uhuru Kenyatta was on a mission to build contacts and enhance trade between the country and its European counterparts during his trip.

The president is currently in Belgium attending the European Union- France summit in Brussels.

With his role as the representative of the East African Community outlined, he also took some time to meet several leaders to sell the country and its prospects for the future.

He met French president Francois Hollande who he spoke with at length about the country and its current and prospective projects and initiatives.

He identified devolution as a key sector in which French companies can come on board and take advantage of.

Further, he argued Kenya's prospects in mining and tourism as places which the country would like to partner with France to create equity.

On his part, president Hollande was full of praise for the country and especially the decision to take on devolution.

He added that it was important for the country to continue build on devolution as it was the driving force to socio- economic growth.

The president also spoke about the crisis in South Sudan and war on terror in Somalia of which he said progress was being made.
