Bangladeshi entrepreneurs have been urged to invest in agriculture and ICT sector in Kenya.

Director General of the Bilateral and Political Affairs of Kenya Moi Lemoshia came up with the call while a 10-member Kenyan delegation held a meeting with leaders of the Dhaka Chamber of Commerce and Industry (DCCI) at Gulshan on Monday.

Moi Lemoshia said Kenya has a warm diplomatic relation with Bangladesh, now they want to turn it into a good trade relation.

He also proposed to establish a joint trade commission to accelerate bilateral trade and to identify the bottlenecks.

“Kenya’s economy is also SME driven so is in Bangladesh”, said the ambassador.

Acting President of Dhaka Chamber Monowar Hossain said Bangladesh is an investment-friendly country.

He said regular exchange of business delegation, B2Bs with the SMEs of Bangladesh and Kenya and regular trade exhibition will open up new window of opportunities.

“If the private sector and public sector of both the countries can work together with shared objectives, we can create more bilateral trade and investment opportunities enhancing the insignificant bilateral trade of only $24.80 million,” said Monowar.

Tareque Muhammad, High Commissioner of Bangladesh in Nairobi, and members of the Board of Directors of DCCI were also present during the meeting.
