Business Roundtable with Kenyan Ambassador

We were honored to be partnering with Senator Brubaker to host H.E. Ambassador Elkanah Odembo, Kenyan Ambassador to the United States for a business roundtable on December 17th.  The Linden School for Girls in Lititz generously donated space for the event and the US-Kenya Chamber of Commerce was instrumental in arranging this opportunity.   Ambassador Odembo provided an overview of Kenya's growing economy, stressing opportunities in the energy sector.  Here are some highlights:
 Kenya is a Key Trading Partner of the United States

  • Over $1 billion in annual trade (imports and exports)
  • U.S. Exports to Kenya total around $600 million annually
  • U.S. Exports include Aircraft, Industrial Machinery, Electrical Machinery, Vehicles, Cereals, Vegetable Oils, and Coarse Grains with opportunities for more product and service introductions.
Kenya is East Africa’s largest regional economy with a sophisticated and highly deregulated free market that is experiencing aggressive growth in the following sectors:
  •  Infrastructure Development
  • Renewable and Alternative Energy
  •  Information Communications Technologies
  • Finance and Banking
  • Agri-Business and Agro-Processing
  • Tourism and other industries
