Trade Principal Secretary Amb. Johnson Weru has told international business partners to offer technical knowledge to local manufacturers in order to promote Kenyan export business.

Speaking during the closing ceremony of Kenya Africa free Trade Area (AfCFTA) in Mombasa Friday, Weru noted that the recently signed partnership should make Kenyans reap big in terms of businesses and employment.
