NAIROBI, Kenya, Oct 29 – Over 1,000 job opportunities were on offer by Chinese companies at the first Kenya-China Economic and Trade Association Career Fair held in Nairobi.
The jobs were in different fields that include construction, automotive, mining and media among others.
Companies that showcased job opportunities include China Road and Bridge Corporation, Sinohydro Corporation, Huawei Technologies, and AVIC International among others.
Kenya’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs Director of Asia and Australasia Affairs, Christopher Chika, welcomed the Chinese companies’ commitment to deepening bilateral relations through career development opportunities.
Such career fairs, he noted, will continue playing a key role to break cultural barriers while providing direct linkages between prospective job seekers and the recruiting firms.
“Kenya has established strategic relationships with China, testified by the frequency of the interaction of the two country’s top leadership. In the economic space, more than 400 Chinese companies have been creating quality local jobs and establishing crucial skills transfer linkages for Kenya’s development agenda,” he said.
