Kenya is a gateway to East Africa, where many Japanese companies have set up business. Marking 60th anniversary of diplomatic relations between the two countries in 2023, Kenya has even increased the importance for Japan in terms of strengthening ties with Global South countries and other points. This MOU is intended to promote business activities of Japanese companies in Kenya by encouraging the cooperation between NEXI and the National Treasury of Kenya, through efforts such as considering yen-denominated fundraising by the Kenyan government utilizing NEXI’s trade insurance, as well as supporting Kenya for its industrial development, green growth and resolution of social issues.

NEXI will continue to deepen its relationships with overseas governments and organizations, aiming to actively help Japanese companies create business opportunities in African and other emerging markets.
