President William Ruto is in San Francisco for an investment conference with leading IT businesses in the USA.
In an effort to convince them to invest in Kenya, the President will meet with senior executives from leading tech companies, including Apple, Intel, Microsoft, and Google.
The purpose of the trip is to improve trade and business prospects with the US.
It presents a chance to support Kenya’s burgeoning startup community, dubbed as the “Silicon Savannah.”
Ruto left the nation on Wednesday night for a visit to the United States where he will highlight Kenya’s dedication to technological innovation.
The President will attend the 78th United Nations General Assembly in New York City, according to State House spokesman Hussein Mohamed.
“Additionally, the Head of State will participate in the UN Secretary-General’s Climate Ambition Summit, building on the successes of the recently concluded Africa Climate Summit in Nairobi,” the spokesperson added.
He said the President will chair a session of the Committee of African Heads of State and Government on Climate Change on the sidelines of the General Assembly.
