The Israeli government has been lauded for the role played in matters of development agenda.
Speaking when she hosted the Israeli Ambassador Micheal Lotem and Stanbic Bank CEO Mr Joshua Oigara, Governor Susan Kihika said Israel has been a key development partner.
“The Israeli Government has been a key development partner in promoting trade and investment opportunities in our country,” she said.
The county boss revealed that they had deliberated on value addition for farm produce, agro-processing and agribusiness, health technology and medical equipment for hospitals.
Other areas included water purification and desalinating salty water from the lakes, as well as financial access for small to medium enterprises to expand opportunities for economic growth.
“We appreciate the Israeli Government and Stanbic Bank for their readiness to partner on areas of mutual interest: health, agriculture, water and trade,” said Kihika.
