The Kenya National Chamber of Commerce and Industry led over 40 members of the private sector who accompanied H.E. President Uhuru Kenyatta a State visit / Trade Mission to the Federal Democratic of Nigeria where bilateral relations between Kenya and Nigeria dominated the visit. The main purpose of this trade mission was to strengthen the bilateral ties between the two great countries.
In their address, the two Presidents urged members of the business community to intensify consultations among themselves to increase the volume of trade between the two countries within the shortest time possible. They encouraged the two countries’ business communities to present to their respective Governments the challenges that may be hindering the smooth flow of investment and business so that they could be addressed.
