NAIROBI, (Xinhua) -- The first China International Import Expo (CIIE) which runs from Nov. 5 to 10 in Shanghai offers a platform for Kenya to boost its trade with the Asian country, said Li Xuhang, charge d’affaires of the Chinese Embassy in Kenya.

“It will be a good opportunity for Kenya to showcase agricultural products to the Chinese market during the expo that will be one of a kind. Kenya has quality farm produce that should be known by consumers in China,” said Li.

He spoke in Nairobi during a briefing attended by senior Kenyan policymakers, lawmakers, scholars and media representatives ahead of the import expo.

President Uhuru Kenyatta will lead a delegation of horticulture farmers and entrepreneurs to the expo where nine companies will showcase products covering a range of areas like agriculture, financial services, tourism and healthcare.

Li said the import expo that seeks to encourage the import of foreign goods into the Chinese market will present an opportunity for Kenya to boost its volume of goods and services traded with the world’s second largest economy.

“The import expo will also be a good opportunity for Kenya to promote its tourism and investment opportunities,” said Li.

Guo Ce, Economic and Commercial Counsellor at the Chinese Embassy in Kenya, said the East African Nation will showcase its heritage as well as unique agricultural products like flowers, coffee, black tea and nuts at the pavilion.

“We sincerely welcome Kenyan exhibitors to take part in CIIE. We believe this is a good beginning for Kenya’s advantageous products to explore the Chinese market and expand its exports to China,” said Guo.
