Talks held 'over Kenya transport infrastructure'

12 August 2010

Kalonzo Musyoka, vice-president of Kenya, has been in talks regarding the country's transport infrastructure.

According to the Daily Nation, Mr Musyoka spoke with those in charge of a number of Chinese firms that carry out business in Kenya.

One such discussion was with the chairman of the board of Sino Hydro, said to be "a major player in the power generation and dam and roads construction".

The vice-president reportedly asked members to assist with reconstruction efforts, with mention given to existing transport projects in the African nation.

Today (August 12th) the China-Africa Agricultural Forum drew to a close, but steps are said to have been made to boost the continent's agricultural output.

New technology will play a part in this, as well as infrastructure development to establish demonstration centres, it emerged.

Kenya also recently received a boost from the World Bank, after the institution announced it had approved funds for the Kenya Coastal Development Project, which will tackle sustainability.
