AKL, in association with the Corporate Council on Africa, hosts event in New York to promote US-Kenyan infrastructure investment opportunities, attended by guest of honour President Uhuru Kenyatta

New York, USA: 30th September 2015

President Uhuru Kenyatta and senior Kenyan and US government officials joined a consortium of American companies, members of the Corporate Council on Africa (CCA), to discuss commercial and investment opportunities in Kenyan infrastructure development.

The breakfast event was held at the Waldorf-Astoria Hotel in New York and was organised by Kenyan social impact infrastructure developer, AKL, in association with the CCA.

This event comes after a number of agreements, including an infrastructure MOU, were signed between Kenya and the United States during President Obama's visit to the country in July this year.

During his speech, President Kenyatta strengthened relationships further by inviting attendees to invest in critical infrastructure development, including the LAPSSET suite of projects that will form the cornerstone of the Access East Africa Trade Corridor.

Since Kenya's establishment of the Public Private Partnership policy in 2013, AKL, who is also a founding member of President Obama's Power Africa initiative, has been working with the CCA and the Kenyan Government to promote deeper relationships with American corporations.

Richard Herbert, AKL CEO said “AKL is delighted and honoured to host such an important event for His Excellency. As a Kenyan company, we have long recognized the importance of a strong relationship between Kenya and the United States, and have made it a priority to partner with some of the best U.S. businesses in developing our country’s infrastructure. Events such as this one serve to further deepen that relationship, and demonstrate to U.S. business that Kenya is ripe for investment. We congratulate and thank both the U.S. and Kenyan governments for joining us in this opportunity to celebrate and deepen the economic ties between the two nations." Download PDF Here...
