Kenya and the U.S. have entered into negotiations for a Free Trade Agreement (FTA), heralding opportunity for Kenyan agricultural goods, among others, to enjoy increased access to the U.S. market beyond the AGOA.
The Ministry of Industrialization, Trade and Enterprise Development estimates that if Kenya were to raise its agriculture exports (amongst other products) to the U.S. by only 5%, Kenya could potentially realize gains in excess of KES 1.8 trillion.
Furthermore, at the launch of the talks, both countries signed a Co-operation framework to build trade capacity to maximize Kenya's utilization of trade benefits in the remaining years of AGOA and support the development and competitiveness of the agriculture sector.
Join us on Thursday August 13, 2020 at 4 p.m. as we delve into the potential benefits of a Kenya – U.S. Trade Agreement on Kenya's Agriculture sector and how the sector can position and ready itself to benefit.
