The Republic of Kenya on Tuesday joined The Canada-Africa Chamber of Business as a full member.
The 27-year-old organisation is committed to accelerating Canada-Africa trade and investment.
Chair of the chamber’s board, Sebastian Spio-Garbrah, stated, “On behalf of the board, I am pleased to welcome an African hub and a leader on the continent.”
The chamber is an independent, not-for-profit organisation working with both Canadian and African businesses and governments.
‘We are excited by this new partnership with the Canada-Africa Chamber of Business. We look forward to benefiting from the expertise and knowledge of over a quarter a century promoting trade and investment between Canada and Africa.
“Kenya is a leading and one of the fastest growing economies in Africa with many attractive trade and investment opportunities across many sectors, and we invite the chamber’s membership and the general Canadian business community to take advantage,” said the Charge d’Affaires at the Kenya High Commission in Ottawa, Stephen Lorete.
President of The Canada-Africa Chamber of Business, Garreth Bloor, said, “Apart from my country of birth, there is no other nation on the continent in which I have spent more time than in the incredible country of Kenya.
“Today, we are honoured to welcome a leading economy, comprising some of the world’s top business leaders. The opportunities are immense and work towards realising Canadian trade and investment in Kenya is already well-underway.”
