MOMBASA — In a move to bolster economic ties, Kenya and the United States are gearing
up for the sixth round of negotiations under the Kenya-United States Strategic Trade and
Investment Partnership (STIP).

Rebecca Miano, Kenya’s Trade and Investments Cabinet Secretary, announced the
forthcoming talks, emphasizing the collaborative effort to advance mutual interests.

Following the fifth round, Miano, alongside United States Trade Representative Katherine
Tai, reaffirmed their dedication to reaching a comprehensive agreement reflective of
shared objectives and values by year’s end.

“We have achieved significant progress across various fronts,” stated CS Miano, citing
advancements in anticorruption measures, bolstering support for micro, small, and
medium-sized enterprises (MSMEs), domestic service regulation, and initial agricultural
framework.

“These provisions are strategically crafted to enhance agricultural trade, combat
corruption, empower MSMEs, and ensure equitable treatment for service providers,” added
Miano, underlining the critical role of these initiatives in fostering economic growth and
stability.

The upcoming negotiations in Mombasa are poised to further solidify the partnership
between Kenya and the United States, heralding new opportunities for collaboration and
economic advancement.
