Congressman Vern Buchanan led a US congressional delegation in a meeting with President William Ruto at State House in Nairobi today.

The two sides discussed the ongoing negotiations for a Strategic Trade and Investment Partnership between Kenya and the United States. “Kenya and the US are negotiating a Strategic Trade and Investment Partnership, which will take the relationship between the two countries to the next level,” President Ruto said.

The President also urged the US Congress to extend the African Growth and Opportunity Act (AGOA), which is set to expire next February. “AGOA has provided a huge market for African finished products over the past 25 years, and is mutually beneficial to both Kenya and the US,” Ruto stated.

Africa has been seeking increased trade and market access to the United States, and the extension of AGOA is seen as crucial to achieving this goal. The negotiations for a deeper trade and investment partnership between Kenya and the US are also viewed as an important step in strengthening economic ties between the two countries.

Congressman Buchanan, who led the US congressional delegation, did not provide further details on the discussions. However, the meeting is seen as an important step in fostering closer cooperation between Kenya and the United States on economic and trade matters.
