Ruto said following the recent demonstration of her democratic maturity in the just concluded polls, Kenya is ready for investment and strategic partnerships with the U.S business community.
"Investors can predict the future of Kenya because it’s a democratic country. We have demonstrated as the people of Kenya, that the rule of law underpins public affairs,” the President said.
He was speaking in New York at a high-level business round-table meeting hosted by the US Chamber of Commerce on trade and investment relationships between Kenya and the US.
He said he is looking forward to the partnership to enhance Kenya’s economic and social transformation.
