In a statement, President Ruto appreciated the interest shown by China in Kenya’s development projects and promised to continue with the partnership.

“China is a valued partner in Kenya’s development journey. We shall stay the course of partnership, collaboration, and cooperation for the mutual advancement of both nations and our citizens,” said Ruto.

Further, President Ruto urged Chinese businesspeople to invest in projects that will expedite the realization of the Bottom-Up Economic Transformation Agenda in Kenya.

Speaking during the Kenya-China Investors’ Roundtable in Beijing, China, Ruto asked the investors to explore opportunities that will facilitate growth in agriculture and agro-industrial manufacturing, the micro, small and medium-sized enterprise sector, affordable housing, universal healthcare, the digital superhighway, and creative economy.

Additionally, he said the government is implementing a diversified investment model consisting of county aggregation industrial parks to unlock the vast industrial potential at the grassroots throughout the country.

“I encourage you to pay close attention to these diverse investment opportunities and move quickly to take advantage of them,” he said.

The President assured the investors that the Government has put in place robust measures to improve the business environment in the country to enhance private investments.

“Kenya has established a strong public-private partnership (PPP) framework, with robust policy instruments and other measures to protect investments and minimize risk across every sector,” he added.
