Reading Time: 1 minute

Kenya and Spain have agreed to expand trade, health, and education relations.

Kenya also welcomed the interest of Spanish companies in tourism, agriculture, infrastructure, water management, and renewable energy projects.

President William Ruto said Kenya was committed to strengthening economic and investment relations with Spain for the benefit of the people.

"The renewal of the current Financial Protocol will add new funds to the kitty and facilitate the implementation of Kenya's priority projects by Spanish companies," he said.

He made the remarks on Wednesday in State House, Nairobi, during the official visit to Kenya by the President of the Government of the Kingdom of Spain, Pedro Sánchez.

It is the first visit to Kenya by a President of the Government of the Kingdom of Spain since diplomatic relations between the two countries were established 57 years ago.

President Sánchez noted that Africa is a priority for Spain's foreign policy.

"We have agreed to develop a broad bilateral agenda, fostering political, economic, and cultural cooperation," he explained.
