“I welcome today’s launch of the United States-Kenya Strategic Trade and Investment Partnership – and thank Cabinet Secretary Maina for her partnership in helping to launch this initiative.
“The U.S.-Kenya relationship is critical to addressing key regional and global challenges – and this initiative represents an opportunity to work together on shared priorities including labor, environment, digital trade, trade facilitation, and good regulatory practices.
“I look forward to working with the Kenyan government over the next few months to build out this partnership and grow our trade and investment relationship in a way that promotes resilience and facilitates sustainable and inclusive economic growth that benefits our workers and our planet. We also hope that this initiative can serve as a model for trade policy engagement in Africa, one of the most dynamic and fastest-growing regions in the world.”
