President William Ruto has jetted back into the country from his four-day tour to Europe. 

He was received at JKIA by his Deputy Rigathi Gachagua and the Inspector General of Police Japheth Koome, among other state leaders.

During his tour, Ruto visited the Federal Republic of Germany and the Kingdom of Belgium.

The trip aimed at strengthening bilateral ties between Kenya and the two nations.

While in Belgium, Ruto said the Kingdom will support Kenya’s development agenda through partnerships in trade and investment, health and renewable energy.

It will also back peace and security plans in the region and climate adaptation.

This is according to President William Ruto.

Ruto spoke after he and Prime Minister of Belgium Alexander De Croo signed a Memorandum of Understanding on Political Consultations, that will provide a framework for engagement on partnerships.

In Germany, the Head of State Ruto noted that the Republic will support Kenya in its attempt to better penetrate the European Union market.

Chancellor of Germany Olaf Scholz said Kenya is a true friend and stable country in Africa whose economy must be helped to thrive.

“The better access to Europe will help Kenyan firms to produce and sell more. This will accelerate employment creation and support more lives,” he said.

President Ruto appreciated Germany’s support in capacity building to facilitate Kenya’s products into the European markets.

He also invited more German companies to invest in value addition of raw materials in Kenya.
