President Uhuru Kenyatta on Monday returned to Nairobi after a four-day state visit to Mozambique.

His office said he traveled to Mozambique to promote trade, enhanced bilateral relations and his “blue economy”.

“During the visit President Kenyatta and his host President Filipe Nyusi witnessed the signing of two broad agreements covering political and economic cooperation and which will be at the centre of closer partnership between Kenya and Mozambique,” the presidency said in a statement.

“In those agreements, the two countries resolved to broaden their cooperation areas of mutual interest including trade, the mining sector, livestock breeding, tourism promotion, agri-business, manufacturing and value addition, and the Blue economy sector.

“President Kenyatta used the visit to announce that Kenya will this year open a consulate in Maputo with the aim of elevating it to a full mission during the next financial year.

“He also announced the scrapping of visa requirements for Mozambican citizens wishing to visit Kenya and encouraged them to explore investment opportunities in East Africa’s giant economy.

“President Kenyatta further expressed the need for a review of the current Joint Commission for Cooperation (JCC) between the two countries with a view of elevating it to a Joint Ministerial Commission (JMC) in the near future.

“This transformation of the JCC to a JMC, said the President, is aimed at up-scaling the bilateral cooperation between Nairobi and Maputo to a more strategic partnership.

“Presidents Kenyatta and Nyusi committed themselves to facilitate the growth of a strong private sector to thrive in both Kenya and the South African Nation.

“President Kenyatta acknowledged that the private sector was a crucial driver to economic growth adding that his administration has taken the necessary steps to streamline rules and procedures to ease business operations , which investors from Mozambique should take advantage of,” the statement added.
