WASHINGTON – On Sunday, May 1, 2022, Assistant United States Trade Representative for African Affairs Constance Hamilton will lead a broad-based delegation to Kenya that will include subject-matter experts from USTR and the Departments of State, Labor, Commerce and Agriculture.    
The delegation will meet with Kenyan government officials to explore opportunities for enhanced trade and investment engagement across a wide range of topics.  The visit follows recent meetings between Ambassador Katherine Tai and Kenyan Cabinet Secretary Betty Maina in which the two agreed to pursue deepening the United States – Kenya trade relationship in a manner that benefits workers, attracts investment, and promotes regional economic integration.  The U.S. team will seek to collaborate with their counterparts on ways to generate inclusive economic growth in pursuit of those shared objectives.  These meetings are closed press.
