Prime Cabinet Secretary Musalia Mudavadi Sunday left Kenya for the United Kingdom, where he will represent President William Ruto at the Commonwealth Trade and Investment Summit organized by the Commonwealth Enterprise and Investment Council.
The meeting is scheduled for Monday, December 5, and Tuesday, December 6, 2022, in London, United Kingdom.
“The Summit comes on the heels of the successful Commonwealth Business forum in Kigali, Rwanda in June 2022 and this year’s COP27,” a statement read in part.
“This year’s summit will look at strategies for a just and secure transition to sustainable energy, food security and resilience, health technology and the future of health delivery and of green finance,”
This year’s edition of the Business-to-Government Summit will be held at the City of London’s iconic Mansion House, with participation from all 56 Commonwealth member countries.
It is expected to boost intra-commonwealth trade and investment, resuming trade after the economic setbacks caused by the Covid-19 pandemic and the spillover effect of the Russian-Ukrainian conflict.
Other topics on the agenda include the evolution of technology, education, public health, youth employment, collaboration between governments, the public and private sectors.
Kenya has been a member of the Commonwealth since 1963, and according to CS Muidavadi, remains committed to its ideals and objectives.
The Commonwealth assists Kenya, under the Commonwealth Secretariat’s Regular Fund formally known as the Commonwealth Fund for Technical Co-operation.
