During the three days of Kenya President William Ruto’s state visit to the White House, US President Joe Biden celebrated 60 years of diplomatic relations and the beginning of a new phase of technical collaboration between the two countries. As part of a UN-led campaign to handle the security issue in the Caribbean nation of Haiti, Kenya has designated itself as a major non-NATO ally and is getting ready to send forces there. This visit signifies this development.

President Biden underlined in his speech the value of the US-Kenyan collaboration, particularly in the area of innovation.

He said, “As we honor 60 years of ties between our countries, it’s clear that our people are the true strength of this partnership. Nowhere is it more important than in the realm of innovation. That’s why we have so many businesses around this table, from Silicon Valley to Silicon Savannah. Our people have brought us forward and pioneered new technologies that are transforming millions of lives.”

Biden unveiled fresh plans to improve technical collaboration, such as investments and collaborations in semiconductors, artificial intelligence, and cybersecurity. He acknowledged the noteworthy achievements made by the present leaders, and said, “Our young population, talented, educated, innovative and American technology that is cutting edge and investment capital and investors that are hungry for opportunities not just in Kenya but in our continent, is a perfect match for this moment. I think we have a historic moment to explore investment opportunities between Kenya and the United States.”

Along with expressing excitement in the collaboration, President Ruto also highlighted its potential for expansion and innovation and said, “Our young population, talented, educated, innovative and American technology that is cutting edge and investment capital and investors that are hungry for opportunities not just in Kenya but in our continent, is a perfect match for this moment. I think we have a historic moment to explore investment opportunities between Kenya and the United States.”

The visit highlights the possibility for greater cooperation in a number of industries as well as Kenya’s strategic significance in the area. It also fits in with the larger American policy of fostering economic and technological cooperation with African countries.
