Israel has opened a trade attaché unit in Kenya as it seeks to strengthen economic and commercial relations between the two nations.
Israel Deputy Ambassador to Kenya Eyal David says that the unit, located at the Embassy of Israel in Kenya, is part of ongoing efforts by his government to enhance relations between Israel and Africa.
The Kenya – Israel bilateral relations are set to improve especially in the sharing of experiences, ideas, business and practices in several sectors after Israel opened a commercial regional office in Nairobi.
Israel’s success in agriculture despite being majorly a desert is one of the areas that Kenya is set to explore.
Speaking at Zetech University in Ruiru, Israel deputy ambassador to Kenya Eyal David said his government remains committed to strengthen trade relations between the two countries.
Other areas the two countries are exploring to improve relations include the resumption of direct flights between Kenya and Israel, plans which were temporarily suspended on security grounds.
Israel has two other trade attaché units in the continent, namely in South Africa and Ghana with Kenya having the latest unit.
