Kenya had the privilege of hosting the second Japan Africa Public-Private Economic Forum.
The forum brought together government and private sector actors from Africa and Japan for an interactive session on progressing trade and investment between the continent of Africa and Japan.
It was organized around four thematic sessions, namely: Innovation, Integration and Industrialization, Green & Digital Infrastructure, and, Accelerating Finance Solutions.
During the high-level plenary session, the participants witnessed the presentation of 18 MOUs between Japanese entities and their African counterparts, which have either been finalised or signed.
“This is a clear indication that our collaboration since the advent of TICAD in 1993 is continually bearing fruits,” said Betty Maina, Kenya’s Industrialization Cabinet Secretary.
The MOUs cover a wide range of sectors including Green Energy, Health, Technology, Finance, Human Resource Development, Motor Vehicle Assembling, Manufacturing and Logistics.©Standard Gazette, 2021.
