Welcome to Kenya
His Excellency Mr Uhuru Kenyatta
President of Kenya
It is my great pleasure to welcome you to explore our wonderful country, Kenya.
Our stunning scenery, warm people and long history of stability and peace have made us the premier destination for tourism in our region. We are also known for our extraordinary athletes and proud sporting tradition that has seen us dominate the Commonwealth Games, the Olympics and numerous international competitions.
Politically, we have taken the lead role in peace-keeping and reconciliation efforts in our often volatile region of East African, and continue to actively seek lasting solutions to the conflicts currently raging in several of our neighbouring countries. We have opened up the democratic space and one of the most democratic countries in Africa, and indeed the world.
Last year Kenya recorded unprecedented economic growth of 5.8% due in no small part to our hard-working, well educated and skilled work force. My government is determined to build on this achievement, and, as the largest, most vibrant economy in East Africa, we continue to attract investment from all over the world. I invite our sister Commonwealth nations to explore all the exciting investment options that Kenya has to offer.
Kenya is a proud member of the Commonwealth, and remains committed to its ideals and objectives.
