President Ruto Reveals What He Has Ordered Trade CS to do With His Ugandan Counterpart

President William Ruto has revealed that he has given orders to outgoing Trade CS Betty Maina to work closely with the Trade minister in Uganda to ensure that businesses between the two countries is swift and have signed guided trade agreements.

His remarks comes before his Trade, Investment and Industry Cabinet Secretary Nominee Moses Kuria is vetted and approved by parliament.

Addressing Ugandans on Sunday during the 60th Independence Day celebrations, Ruto proposed East African Community with no boarders but 'bridges' a move he argued would boost relations and businesses across the EAC countries.

"I did instruct the Minister for Trade in Kenya to work with the Trade Minister in Uganda, so that together we can formulate and sign in to the guided trade agreement that will facilitate the African continental free trade area to begin to become a reality, so that we can earnest the opportunities for investments and trade."

Ruto went on to challenge the investors, trade and business people within the East African countries to take advantage of the available infrastructure and invest across the countries.

The vocal UDA party leader also noted that the EAC communities have the power to manufacture own fertilizers instead of importing and hence save more while making the commodity easily accessible to farmers.
