Kenyatta will be seeking the support of potential investors to put money in projects that include manufacturing, building houses, agriculture and health/PSCU

NAIROBI, Kenya, Jan 19 – President Uhuru Kenyatta is expected to make a fresh pitch for his Big four agenda projects at the inaugural UK-Africa Investment summit which kicks off Monday.

Kenyatta will be seeking the support of potential investors to put money in projects that include manufacturing, building houses, agriculture and health.

The president will be attending the summit in the company of National Treasury Cabinet Secretary Ukur Yatani, Housing Principal Secretary Charles Hinga and Central Bank of Kenya Governor Patrick Njoroge among others.

Kenya Private Sector Alliance CEO Carole Kariuki, Equity Group CEO James Mwangi and Centum CEO James Mworia are also expected at the event.

On Saturday, the Kenyan High Commissioner to the UK Ambassador Manoah Esipisu said the summit will provide an opportunity for a robust discussion between the Governments of Kenya and the UK on areas of cooperation.

“As you know, Kenya has always trumpeted trade and investment, and we do expect that these are the areas that they will focus on for the prosperity of the people of Kenya as well as the prosperity of the people of the United Kingdom,” Esipisu said.

Organizers of the summit say they expect the event to create new lasting partnerships that will deliver more investment, jobs and growth for all participants.

“We want the UK to be the investment partner of choice for Africa,” a statement on gov.uk says.
