Uhuru Kenyatta implores China to give preferential treatment for African goods.

Kenya’s President, Uhuru Kenyatta has implored China to give preferential treatment to goods from Africa as it continues opening up its vast market to the rest of the world. President Kenyatta, who spoke when he delivered a keynote address at the inaugural China International Import Expo being held in Shanghai, called on Chinese President Xi Jinping to enact measures to proactively raise the volume of goods coming from the African continent to China.

He said China can start by reducing tariffs on specific goods so that more traders from countries including Kenya can access the vast Chinese market of 1.4 billion people. While acknowledging China’s leading role in the Kenyan economy as a trading partner, the President called for increased Chinese investments in his East African country.
