On 23rd March 2018 H.E. Mr. Patrick Simiyu Wamoto, Ambassador of the Republic of Kenya to the Kingdom of Thailand paid a courtesy call on Mr. Jesda Katavetin, Director-General, Department of South Asian, Middle East and African Affairs of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs. Both sides discussed and exchanged views on a number of issues, including the political and economic development of Kenya, the Meeting of the 2nd Joint Commission for Bilateral Cooperation (JC) and the 1st Meeting of the Joint Trade Committee (JTC) between Thailand and Kenya, hosted by the Thai side, the intensification of development cooperation, the expansion of trade and investment cooperation

Kenya is one of the long - standing partners of Thailand in Eastern Africa. In 2017, the bilateral trade value touched 250.93 million US dollars, which was greater than the previous year’s by 52.18 %. Kenya is also an emerging market for Thai investors in many areas such as tourism and services, agricultural product processing, fishery, construction, as well as energy. At present, Kenya serves as a gateway to the East African Community (EAC) for Thailand. On the international front, Kenya is an active member of the myriad leading regional integrations such as the African Union (AU) and the Common Market for Eastern and Southern Africa (COMESA), comprising 19 member states with a total population of over 400 million.

Kenya has recently launched the Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) promotion policy entitled “the Big Four Agenda”, comprising food security, affordable housing, affordable healthcare, and manufacturing, which could be an extraordinary opportunity for Thailand to enhance partnership with Kenya.
