Kenya, Poland Partnership to Boost Local Food Production

2 mins read

Kenya and Poland earlier today signed two MoUs on tax solidarity, agriculture, and rural development.

President William Ruto said Kenya is enhancing its partnership with Poland in the agriculture and food security sector to bridge the gap in the country’s grain demand.

Speaking during a media address with Polish President Andrzej Duda, who is in the country for a State Visit, President Ruto said the partnership will help Kenya to achieve its food security goals.

“I urged President Duda to partner with us through public-private and government-to-government partnerships to explore the vast market in the agricultural sector, particularly in post-harvest value addition, aiming to conclusively address food security,” he said.

President Ruto invited Poland to consider Mombasa and Lamu ports as possible logistics hubs for exporting products to the region and beyond.

President Duda said Poland is keen on fostering strong economic relations with Kenya.

“This is not a courtesy visit. Instead, it is a visit which brings with it huge economic potential for the future,” he said.

President Ruto called on Polish investors to exploit investment opportunities in the country. He appealed to them to leverage Kenya’s strategic geographical advantage for their regional and continental investments.

In alignment with President Ruto’s agricultural development goals, PS Mueke also held bilateral meetings with the federation of cattle breeders, dairy cooperatives, and the Poznan University of Life Sciences who are part of the visiting Polish President’s delegation.

They discussed areas of cooperation in animal breeding, value addition, and climate-smart livestock production.
