At State House on Wednesday, Ruto met Jean-Jacques Bouya, the president of the Republic of Congo’s Special Envoy for Regional Planning, Infrastructure, and Road Maintenance.
Consequently, Kenya and Eritrea decided to permanently abolish the need for visas for their nationals last month.
The decision, according to Presidents William Ruto and Isaias Afwerki, will spur the economies of the two nations to change.
According to a statement from Ruto, the amount of trade between Kenya and Eritrea as of the year ending 2020 was Sh73.4 million, down from Sh257 million in 2015.
Nonetheless, the two nations concurred that there is significant trade and investment potential between them, which necessitates formal cooperation.
