- The President is expected to lead bilateral talks with his South Africa host Cyril Ramaphosa.
- Kuria arrived in Pretoria on Sunday for a bilateral and investments review meeting with his south Africa counterpart Patel Ebrahim.
Trade and Investments Cabinet Secretary Moses Kuria is in South Africa in preparation for President William Ruto's State visit in November.
Kuria arrived in Pretoria on Sunday for a bilateral and investments review meeting with his South Africa counterpart Patel Ebrahim.
The early visit by Kuria is part of the Kenyan government's preparatory engagements for President Ruto's debut state visit to South Africa next month.
“Arrived in Pretoria ahead of bilateral trade & investments review meeting with my South African counterpart Minister Patel Ebrahim and to lay ground for November meeting between Presidents @WilliamsRuto and @CyrilRamaphosa,” Kuria tweeted.
The CS who is on his first foreign trip since his swearing-in last week is expected to hold talks with Ebrahim to craft a business and bilateral agenda that will feature during Ruto's visit.
“I am under strict instructions from my boss @WilliamsRuto to look at the issues surrounding free flow of Foreign Portfolio Investments into Kenya,” Kuria said on his Twitter.
The CS said, in the next 48 hours, he will outline the measures that the government of Kenya will be taking to enhance trade ties with South Africa.
Kuria was sworn in last week as the CS for Trade and Investments, a key pillar in President's economic agenda for the country.
President Ruto's visit to South Africa later next month will be his fifth State visit to a foreign country as President after Ethiopia and Tanzania.
He visited Uganda to attend the country's independence Day Celebrations in which he also had bilateral talks with his host Yoweri Museveni.
