Background: A big Kenyan trade exhibition was opened in Tokyo on Friday (23 Feb), by Kenya's Assistant Minister of Commerce and Industry, Mr. Babu Wood.
The six-day exhibition is being staged with the co-operation of the Japan External Trade Organisation (JETRO).
It's the biggest Kenyan trade venture in Japan, and it's being held in an attempt to boost Kenya's exports to Japan, thus correcting the big trade imbalance between the two countries.
Two-way trading volume between Japan and Kenya has brown quickly. In 1971, it was worth GBP 23,750,000 (US$57-million), two and a half times the GBP 9,585,000 (US$23-million) registered in 1967.
At the exhibition, goods on display included cotton goods, ivory ornaments, ladies' accessories, household toiletries and chemical products.
