Kenya and Germany are set to strengthen their economic ties and improve trade volumes for the benefit of their citizens. This follows recent talks between the President of the Kenya National Chamber of Commerce and Industry (KNCCI), Richard Ngatia, and the Mayor of the City of Gersothen, Michael Worle.
During a press conference in Nairobi, Ngatia highlighted the Kenyan business community’s desire to work with Bavarian businesses and Germany as a whole in the fields of ICT, E-Mobility, TVET, and vocational training. These areas of cooperation will help in the transfer and development of technology. Ngatia also expressed confidence that Kenya’s relationship with Germany is set to grow, particularly in the area of capacity building for Micro, Small, and Medium Enterprises (MSMEs).
In addition to these areas of collaboration, the talks also covered potential cooperation in the fields of health, construction, and agriculture. The Mayor of the City of Gersothen, Michael Worle, noted that Bavaria, as the commercial and economic capital of Germany, has much to offer in terms of expertise, particularly in the areas of clean water and green energy.
The talks between Kenya and Germany demonstrate a strong commitment to improving economic ties and promoting mutually beneficial collaboration. By working together in areas such as technology transfer and development, capacity building for MSMEs, and various sectors including health, construction, and agriculture, both countries stand to gain from this partnership.
