President William Ruto on Thursday met with Jamaica Prime Minister Andrew Holness at the 77th UN General Assembly in New York.
Ruto said Kenya looks forward to partnering and working with Jamaica in strategic areas of mutual interest such as tourism and sports for the economic development of the two countries.
On his part, Prime minister Holness said even though Jamaica and Kenya established diplomatic relations in March 1976 both countries have made concerted efforts to increase bilateral ties in recent years.
“Jamaica looks to expand relations with our brothers and sisters on the African continent. Dr Ruto was sworn in as Kenya’s new president earlier this month, and I was pleased to extend my congratulations to him,” Holness said.
He added, I anticipate our continued excellent relationship with Kenya under Dr Ruto’s leadership and look forward to opportunities for partnership and cooperation in the interest of both our peoples.
Earlier, Ruto was a guest at the United Nations Development Programme’s inaugural Africa Investment Partnership Forum where discussions centered on moving Africa from aid to investment.
“Africa must scale up policies that spur democracy and create a friendly investment environment that will stimulate job creation and wealth generation. This way, we will drive growth and reduce dependence on foreign aid,” Ruto said.
