Kenya’s President Uhuru Kenyatta has met visiting Japanese Foreign Affairs Minister Mr Toshimitsu Motegi.
Motegi, who is on a two-day visit to the East African country, expressed Japan’s continued commitment to supporting Kenya’s development programs especially key infrastructure projects.
The Foreign Affairs Minister singled out the ongoing expansion of Mombasa Port and the development of the Dongo Kundu Special Economic Zone (SEZ) as some of the projects that his government is keen on seeing through.
The Japanese Minister also briefed the Kenyan leader on the planned Japan-Kenya Business Dialogue which is set to be held later this year in Japan and extended Prime Minister Yoshide Suga’s invitation to President Kenyatta.
Kenyatta acknowledged Japan’s continued support for Kenya’s development programs saying Kenya will continue working on deepening its long and historical ties with the Asian nation.
Motegi and his delegation held several bilateral meetings with Kenyan counterparts to explore ways of expanding economic collaboration between Kenya and Japan in the post-Covid era and beyond.
