Participants

HE Dr Amina Mohamed EGH CAV, Cabinet Secretary, Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Republic of Kenya
Chair: Dr Mo Ibrahim, Founder and Chair, Mo Ibrahim Foundation

Overview

Kenya’s prominence in regional mediation and security provision and its role in championing East Africa’s integration for shared economic benefit underpin its significant clout in Africa. The country’s importance as a partner to non-African countries is increasing, as exemplified by a proliferation of recent high-profile visits from world leaders, and its selection as the location for global events including the latest session of the United Nations Conference on Trade and Development (UNCTAD), the World Trade Organisation’s Ministerial Conference and Japan’s Tokyo International Conference on African Development (TICAD VI).

At this event, HE Dr Amina Mohamed will discuss Kenya’s foreign policy priorities and assess the impact of Kenya’s international relations on its future prosperity.
