NAIROBI, Kenya, Dec 14 – Kenya and Lithuania have committed to growing economic ties between the two countries.
This follows the official opening of the Consulate of Lithuania in Nairobi and the recent appointment of Senior Counsel George Oraro as the Honorary Consul.

Lithuania’s Vice-Minister for Foreign Affairs, Amb. Raimundas Karoblis officially opened the Consulate, which is only Lithuania’s third diplomatic office in Africa (after South Africa and Egypt).

Foreign Affairs Cabinet Secretary, Amb. Amina Mohammed reaffirmed the Kenyan government’s commitment to exploring the partnership.

Among the areas earmarked for possible partnership between the two countries include manufacturing, life sciences, business services and agricultural industries.

During the official opening, held at the Nairobi Serena Hotel, Amb. Raimundas Karoblis remarked: “There is great opportunity for trade relations between Kenya and Lithuania. The fact that we are ranked 24th in the world in ‘Ease of Doing Business’ by the World Bank’s Doing Business Report 2015 and the 15th freest economy in the world, makes us very attractive.”

Senior Counsel George Oraro’s appointment means that he will champion the commercial, diplomatic and cultural interests between the two countries.

“There is much to benefit from enhancing relationship with Lithuania, ranging from superior technology in energy sector to sophisticated agricultural equipment, high end education especially in medical science and information technology,’’ said Senior Counsel George Oraro adding that Lithuania can also tap into Kenya’s vibrant floriculture and tourism.

In attendance at the ceremony were various Kenyan business and political leaders including Baringo Senator Gideon Moi.
