Kenyan President Uhuru Kenyatta witnesses an exchange between UNCTAD secretary general Mukhisa Kituyi and Foreign Affairs Cabinet Secretary Amina Mohamed at State House, Nairobi
Kenya will remain in the global spotlight for the second year running in 2016 as the United Nations Conference on Trade and Investment (UNCTAD), and Kenya have recently signed a joint statement announcing that Nairobi will host the 14th UNCTAD, which brings together heads of state and government, global corporate leaders, the academia and the civil society in July.
The statement read, “We look forward to welcoming the world to Nairobi for the first United Nations implementation conference since the conclusion of the Addis Ababa Action Agenda in July 2015, the Agenda 2030 in New York and the just concluded COP21 in Paris”.
The summit which is a quadrennial conference, allows discussions on implementing decisions on the United Nations 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. It will provide Kenya a unique business opportunity as it runs concurrently with the World Investment and Global Commodities forums.
