Reading Time: 1 minute

Royal Danish Embassy delegation paid a visit to the Kenya Naval Training College (KNTC) at the Kenya Navy (KN) Headquarters, Mtongwe, on September 7, 2022.

The visit aimed to discuss opportunities for Maritime cooperation between the Kingdom of Denmark and the Republic of Kenya following the existing Agreement between the two countries, dubbed the 'Maritime Cooperation Programme' (MCP).

The MCP supports developing Kenya's Maritime Domain Awareness concept under a Danish Peace and Stabilization Programme for the Horn of Africa.

In a meeting with the delegation, Brigadier Yahya Abdi, the Commander of Kenya Navy Base Mtongwe, expressed his gratitude to the Kingdom of Denmark for their support to the KN in capacity building.

He stated that the support has been instrumental in boosting the training of the KN personnel at the KNTC, resulting in enhanced KN readiness in tackling maritime threats.

Later, the delegation visited the Full Mission Bridge Simulator (FMBS), Fire Fighting Unit at KNTC, and the Clearance Diving Unit at the KN headquarters.

Kenya and the Kingdom of Denmark have a long history of maritime security cooperation aimed at harnessing the blue economy and safeguarding a free, open, and prosperous Indian Ocean region.
