Zambia and Kenya signed Memorandums of Understanding (MoU) in agriculture, tourism, police co-operation and gender equality to boost trade, investment and economic development between the countries.
Minister of Foreign Affairs Harry Kalaba signed on behalf of Zambia while Kenya’s Minister of Foreign Affairs and International Trade Amina Mohamed signed on behalf of her country.
Kalaba said Zambia has been a mono-economy for a long time and time has come to diversify into other sectors such as agriculture.
He said Zambia and Kenya share very strong views on gender and equality such as women emancipation, gender parity issues and the realisation of Agenda 2063.
“Kenya has been a leader in the tourism sector and you can only ignore them at your own peril for and a country like Zambia, which is endowed with so many natural resources, it is important that we learn from Kenya,” he said.
He said it is important for Zambia and Kenya to continue strengthening relations for the benefit of the two countries.
