Manufacturers hold talks with Zambia for trade opportunities

Kenyan manufacturers have held bilateral talks with Zambia on enhancing economic cooperation between the two.

The talks between a Trade and Economic attache at the Zambian Embassy Kenya Thomas Zulu and CEO of Kenya Association of Manufacturers (KAM) Phylis Wakiaga focused on how to enhance bilateral ties and increase cooperation in tourism, transport, trade, investment, air-link and regional security.

Part of the deals reached on cooperation on how the two nations will have business linkages where businessmen will visit the two countries to explore the available opportunities.

The talks also resolved on how the two nations will have a trade show to showcase products.

“We are very happy today and we are hopeful that our ties will even grow stronger in the next coming days,” said Zulu.

Kenya and Zambia have for many years enjoyed warm relations in agriculture, tourism, education and information communication and technology (ICT).

The two countries have an existing MOU on science, technology and innovation.

President Uhuru Kenyatta visited Zambia in 2014 during the burial of former President, the late Michael Sata before, returning to the country on a State visit in July 2015 on the invitation of President Lungu.

President Kenyatta visited Zambia again in 2016 to attend the African Development Bank (AfDB) meeting.

Kenya exports edible oils, margarine, iron sheets, steel pipes and products, detergents, baking powder, kitchen and tablewares, spices, blankets, beauty products, toiletries, irrigation pumps, tyres, and textiles and crafts to Zambia.

Kenya’s top imports from Zambia include copper wire or refined, maize seed, electric conductors, butane, LPG, waste and scrap primary cells, crude vegetable material, pig iron and asbestos.
