The day-long event was hosted by the Confucius Institute of the University of Nairobi with the support of the Chinese enterprises and the Chinese communities in Kenya.

A job fair by Chinese companies that opened on Wednesday will be providing about 1,000 job opportunities, up from 400 vacancies last year to Kenyan students.

"Over 50 Chinese companies participated in the job fair with nearly 1,000 job opportunities,"  Li Xuhang, Charge d'Affaires of the Chinese embassy in Kenya, told a media briefing in Nairobi.

The Chinese diplomat urged Chinese companies to take full advantage of the job fair to select young talents and train them to reach their best potentials.

Li said China will continue with its endeavor to promote international cooperation, especially through the Belt and Road Initiative, the Sino-Kenya cooperation is ushering in a golden era.

He added, China-Kenya relations have in recent years enjoyed the best momentum ever and the friendly cooperation had accomplished remarkable results.

Prof. Peter Mbithi, Vice-Chancellor of the University of Nairobi, said that the job recruitment exercise will go a long way in establishing active networks and links between students and potential employers.

The VC added that the fair will also strengthen the university's critical contribution to sustainable development through its core academic function of research and teaching and amplified focus on employability.
