Botswana seeks to invest in Kenya’s robust economy
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.
