Kenya and China have continued to foster and deepen their bilateral relations following the signing of six new trade deals between the two nations. The agreements, which touched on areas such as poverty reduction, health, bilateral investments, digital innovation, peace and security and green development, were signed when China’s Minister for Foreign Affairs, Wang Yi, visited the coastal city of Mombasa, on an official state visit, on Thursday. The deals were in line with nine programmes announced by China’s President Xi Jinping during the 8th Ministerial Conference of FOCAC held in Dakar, Senegal in November 2021 aimed at supporting African nations. “Our relations have since continued to deepen under the Strategic Comprehensive Cooperation Partnership framework which has led to high level exchanges between both sides and bilateral cooperation in virtually every socio-economic sector,” Foreign Affairs Cabinet Secretary Raychelle Omamo said when she received the Chinese dignitary in Mombasa.
