They said Kenya and Rwanda will expand trade and investment as well help the region in terms of peace and security.

President Ruto asked Rwanda to make use of the more efficient Port of Mombasa.

He said the facility has also been expanded and modernised to handle more cargo.

The President said the Port also offers cargo owners the option to collect goods at the Naivasha Inland Container Depot.

This will help to save on time and cost, hence enhance trade between the two countries,” Ruto stated.

He said Kenya was committed to working with Rwanda in advancing peace and security, trade and investment and the implementation of Agenda 2063.

The two leaders agreed that the instability in South Sudan, Ethiopia and the Democratic Republic of the Congo require constant attention.

We must take advantage of the existing mechanisms to entrench peace as the foundation of the stability that guarantees shared prosperity,” President Ruto added.

President Kagame said the new areas of cooperation will bring closer Nairobi and Kigali. He saluted the big Kenyan community that has invested in Rwanda.
