Recent changes in Kenyan government departments saw the President transfer Dr Kiptoo’s Department of International Trade from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs to that of Industrialisation, Trade and Co-operatives.

The new changes mean that the Foreign Ministry under Dr Monica Juma will no longer be handling international trade issues although she will still handle the co-ordination of relations with international trade bodies like the World Trade Organisation and UN agencies.
