  • Description

    Brazil's Foreign Minister Mario Gibson Barboza held talks with Kenyan Government leaders on Friday (2 February). Senor Gibson is on a tour of European, African and Caribbean countries to develop stronger trade ties.

    He held discussions with Kenya's Foreign Minister Dr. Joroge Mungei before making a scheduled call on President Jomo Kenyatta.

    Senor Gibson and Dr. Mungai were believed to have discussed aspects of an agreement on technical co-operation and the world coffee market situation, following last year's breakdown of the international agreement.

    SYNOPSIS: The Brazilian Foreign Minister, Senor Mario Gibson Barboza, has been making a three-day visit to Kenya. At Harambee House in Nairobi he met Kenya's Foreign Minister Doctor Mungai.

    They were reported to have discussed aspects of an agreement on technical co-operation between the two countries. The world coffee market was another topic discussed, following last year's breakdown of the international agreement. In the past there has been strong rivalry between Brazilian and African coffee producers.

    While in Nairobi, Senor Gibson was also expected to sign an agreement with Kenya on cultural exchanges.

    The Brazilian Foreign Minister's visit to Kenya is just part of his 1973 world tour to develop stronger trade ties with European, African and Caribbean countries. Following his Kenyan visit, Mr. Gibson flew to Tel Aviv and Cairo for trade discussions. Later this year he will visit France and West Germany, before going on to the Dominican Republic, Haiti and Barbados.
