Kenya and China are making huge strides in boosting economic and trade exchanges. Recently, President Uhuru Kenyatta signed a deal with China’s Xi Jinping to export its Hass Avocados to China. It is estimated that when the agreement is fully implemented, the Chinese market will take in more than 40 percent of Kenya’s avocado produce, making it one of the largest importers of the fruit. Kenya says its plans to export 13 other priority farm produce to China in future. This is all part of a an ambitious plan to grow its exports by 20% per year by 2022, focusing on six areas, including tea, coffee, horticulture, tobacco, textiles and apparel. CGTN delved further into Kenya’s export strategy in the short and long term with Peter Biwott, CEO of the Export Promotion Council.
