Kenya largely exports apparel products to the USA. 

President William Ruto has said that Kenya is ready for more deals with the US under the AGOA programme. 

The Head of State mentioned that he was looking forward to the US-Africa Summit in December to discuss expanding trade between Kenya and the United States.

Ruto added that Kenya had plenty more to offer the United States as a trade partner.

Kenya largely exports apparel products to the USA with potential to export more products including value added tea, coffee, and cut flowers.

The President spoke on Monday, October 31, when he met a US delegation led by US Deputy Secretary of Agriculture Dr. Jewel Bronaugh at State House, Nairobi. She was accompanied by US Ambassador to Kenya Meg Whitman, Nebraska Secretary of State Bob Evnen, and Nebraska Deputy Secretary of State Cindi Allen, among others.

This comes barely a month after President Ruto hosted Amb. Mike Hammer, the US Special Envoy for the Horn of Africa, in State House. 

Mr.  Hammer affirmed US efforts in supporting peace and security in the Horn of Africa, particularly in Ethiopia and DRC, and thanked Kenya for her continued pivotal role in anchoring stability in the region.
