The agreement was reached when President Uhuru Kenyatta held bilateral talks with President Danny Faure of Seychelles, who is on a historic State Visit to Kenya.

Holding a joint press conference at State House, Kenyatta announced that Kenya would export more human capital and agricultural products to Seychelles.

President Faure stated that it made more economic sense for his country to import beef and poultry from Kenya instead of countries like Brazil.

President Kenyatta disclosed that Seychelles would employ Kenyan teachers to join other Kenyans working in other sectors in the island nation.

As part of the efforts to enhance the close cooperation between the two nations, Kenya Airways would also increase its flights to Seychelles.

“It is both our ambitions and intention to ensure that we do everything that we can to deepen regional trade investment and to grow our regional economies by working together.

“What we are doing now is to improve Government to Government ties,” said President Kenyatta as he thanked the important role Seychelles had played as a strategic security partner in dealing with piracy and drug trafficking.

President Faure promised to help Kenya develop its blue economy and to improve the security of its Exclusive Economic Zone.

“We can help you develop your fisheries sector and your defence sector specifically coast guard,” said President Faure.
