The Head of State who arrived in the UK on Monday evening will also deliver an address at Chatham House, the shrine for policy and investment thinkers in London/PSCU

NAIROBI, Kenya, Apr 17 – President Uhuru Kenyatta will on Tuesday visit the London Stock exchange for a meeting with investors, using the event to share areas of investment opportunity in terms of his Big Four agenda, as well as job creation.

The Head of State who arrived in the UK on Monday evening will also deliver an address at Chatham House, the shrine for policy and investment thinkers in London.

His speech will dwell on Kenya’s efforts in achieving inclusive growth, the positive role Kenya is playing in supporting regional peace, and its station in a globalising world.

The President is also expected to speak on his Big Four development agenda, which is at the heart of his drive for inclusive growth.

He is scheduled to hold talks with Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II and Prime Minister Theresa May.

He is also expected to hold more bilateral talks with several Heads of State attending the Commonwealth Heads Of Government Meeting, a biennial meeting of leaders from the 53 countries that make up the Commonwealth of Nations.

This year’s summit, focused on promoting prosperity, safety, sustainability and fairness, brings together at least 5000 participants from government, business, and civil society.

Besides trade and diplomacy, security and regional development priorities are also part of President Kenyatta’s agenda during the five-day visit.

Also on the agenda for the President is building momentum for the Blue Economy global conference Kenya will host later in the year.

The blue economy is part of the themes of the CHOGM summit with discussions set to take place on the new Commonwealth Blue Charter on ocean governance.
