The Star (Kenya) - - Politics -

In May, Kenya signed seven trade agree­ments with South Korea to im­prove health, ed­u­ca­tion, en­ergy, ICT and in­dus­tri­al­i­sa­tion. One of the deals was to en­able the Korea Ex­port-Im­port Bank to pump in an ini­tial Sh5 billion to sup­port agri­cul­ture. The me­moran­dum with the Korean Bank was signed for Kenya by Agri­cul­ture CS Willy Bett. Other pacts were on co­op­er­a­tion in health, in­no­va­tion and higher ed­u­ca­tion, elec­tric power and nu­clear en­ergy de­vel­op­ment. The deal on sci­en­tific and tech­no­log­i­cal co­op­er­a­tion – signed by Ed­u­ca­tion CS Fred Ma­tiang’i and Korea’s For­eign Af­fairs min­is­ter Yun Byung-se – en­tailed the shar­ing of poli­cies and tech­nolo­gies in sci­ence and tech­nol­ogy. It also in­volves im­ple­ment­ing ex­changes be­tween research and de­vel­op­ment in­sti­tutes in Kenya and South Korea. Un­der this agree­ment, the two coun­tries would ex­change hu­man re­sources.
