NAIROBI, (CAJ News) – THE United Kingdom Export Finance (UKEF) has joined the African Trade Insurance (ATI), the pan-African export credit agency to encourage more UK businesses to trade with Kenya.

As an ATI member, UKEF would gain access to information about upcoming opportunities for exporters, as well as local knowledge of firms and projects.

UKEF’s ATI membership will also give Kenyan buyers and UK suppliers enhanced access to each other and will help identify and promote real business opportunities where UK and Kenyan companies can work together, and provide the local market knowledge needed to facilitate trade.

Witnessing UKEF joining ATI, Nic Hailey, British High Commissioner to Kenya, said UK was a global leader in many of the sectors for which Kenya has greatest demand.

The industries include infrastructure, advanced engineering, energy, ICT, and defence and security.

“In these and other specialist areas, UK expertise can help accelerate  Kenya’s development and economic growth.”
