Last week, the Agricultural Society of Kenya leadership team led by the Nairobi Branch Chair Joseph Mugo paid a courtesy call to  Nairobi Governor  Johnson Sakaja.

Sakaja and his Deputy Njoroge Muchiri are the official Patrons of the Nairobi show.

The Governor called upon Nairobi residents to attend the show.

 "It is great to see the Nairobi International Trade Fair back after two years due to the global Covid-19 pandemic, and more pleased for this to be happening in my first year of administration," Sakaja said.

He stated that trade and agriculture play a critical role in Kenya’s economic blueprint, more so in Nairobi which sits at the centre of connecting and promoting two-way trade between Kenyans and other like-minded trading partners across the globe.

"It is about time that Nairobi reclaimed its position in the region as the preferred destination for our international trading partners," Sakaja added.
