China to in­vest in tea pro­cess­ing

The Star (Kenya) - - Politics Ministries -

Kenya’s tea is the best qual­ity in Africa and China might in­vest in hav­ing it pro­cessed lo­cally and ex­ported, in­vestors say. “Kenya pro­duces the best tea qual­ity but with­out tea blend­ing com­pa­nies in the re­gion, it may not re­alise the po­ten­tial ef­fects it has lo­cally. We also en­cour­age tea pro­ces­sors to look for the Chi­nese mar­kets,” Wang Xu Dong said. He is the pres­i­dent of the China Coun­cil for the Pro­mo­tion of In­ter­na­tional Trade. A del­e­ga­tion, led by Wang, met in­vestors in Mom­basa to ex­plore busi­ness op­por­tu­ni­ties in agri­cul­ture, con­struc­tion and tourism. China is also in­ter­ested in cof­fee, nuts and fish­eries.
