A group of Hong Kong businessmen is in Kenya for talks on trade. The leader?
A group of Hong Kong businessmen is in Kenya for talks on trade. The leader of the group said the colony was interested in joint ventures with Kenya, but was not clear on the country's Africanisation policies.
Skins and hides currently make up 95 per cent of the exports from Kenya to Hong Kong. Over the past few years the export of fresh and frozen meat to the colony has declined and the Hong Kong businessmen said they would like market to increase.
The businessmen have brought a wide range of articles made in Hong Kong for display to local importers. The goods include clothes, radios, travel goods and jewellery.
The Kenyan Minister for Commerce and Trade, Doctor J. Keino, met the delegation on Tuesday (28 May). Here is a transcript of preliminary talks between him and the head of the delegation, Mr. Edward Ho-Asjoe.
