British High Commissioner Nic Hailey met with Kenyan Deputy President William Ruto yesterday for talks on the trade and investment relationship between the two countries. 

Commenting on the meeting, Mr Ruto said: “Kenya and the United Kingdom enjoy long-standing partnership in trade, investment and development cooperation, especially in manufacturing, infrastructure and technology.

“We are strengthening our historical ties; deepening collaboration; exploiting emerging markets and maximising opportunities in readiness for the post-Brexit era,” he added.

Mr Hailey also took the opportunity to reassure Mr Ruto of the UK’s commitment that the UK’s withdrawl from the European Union will provide both continuity and new opportunities for Kenyan businesses exporting to Britain.
