The government also received KES 15 billion support from the Danish government and another KES 2 billion from Canada to support coffee farming, youth and women entrepreneurship.

The EU and Barclays Bank also pledged to support various projects in the country, Daily Nation reports.

The WTO meeting came more than 20 years after the conclusion of the Marrakesh Agreement in Morocco which led to the creation of the WTO in January 1995, with Kenya becoming the first African country to host it.
