Botswana seeks to in­vest in Kenya’s ro­bust econ­omy

The Star (Kenya) - - News Business -

Botswana in­vestors are keen on in­vest­ment op­por­tu­ni­ties in Kenya’s agri­cul­tural, man­u­fac­tur­ing and ICT sec­tors. The two coun­tries are push­ing for deeper trade ties, and yes­ter­day in Nairobi signed an MoU on trade, in­dus­try and in­vest­ment. About 23 Botswana com­pa­nies were part of the govern­ment del­e­ga­tion on a two-day trade mis­sion to Kenya. “Botswana im­ports 99 per cent of its dairy prod­ucts. We want tea, we want cof­fee. Bring in your ex­per­tise in agri­cul­ture,” Botswana In­vest­ment and Trade Cen­tre CEO Let­sebe Se­joe said. Trade CS Adan Mo­hamed said the part­ner­ship will sup­port a tri­par­tite free trade be­ing sought by EAC, SADC and Comesa. “Our mar­kets are small; we have to make sure we take ad­van­tage of what our mar­kets can of­fer,” Mo­hamed said.
