President Uhuru Kenyatta on Wednesday signed a deal to have avocados exported to Mauritius.

According to Foreign Affairs CS Monica Juma, other Kenyan foods that will also access the Mauritian market include baby carrots and broccoli.

“Appreciating Kenya’s avocado that is now approved to get into the Mauritian market…” a tweet from Amb. Juma reads.

President Kenyatta arrived in Port Louis, Mauritius on Tuesday evening for a four-day State visit.

The Head of State held talks with his Mauritian counterpart Paramasivum Pillay Vyapoory at State House, Le Réduit and later Prime Minister Pravind Jugnauth.

“The visit to the Republic of Mauritius offers a great opportunity to strengthen the brotherly ties that exist between the two nations,” State House Kenya said on Twitter.

President Kenyatta is expected to attend a business forum organised by the Mauritius Economic Development Board.

The meeting is in collaboration with the Mauritius Chamber of Commerce and Industry, the Kenya Private Sector Alliance (KEPSA) and the Kenya Investment Authority.

It will be used to showcase trade and investment opportunities between Mauritius and Kenya.

President Kenyatta is accompanied by Cabinet Secretaries Monica Juma (Foreign Affairs) and Prof. George Magoha (Education) among other senior government officials.
