Several Kenyan businesspeople are expected to arrive in Luanda to take part in the Kenya-Angola Trade and Investment Conference, which is set to run between July 21 and 26.
The Kenyan business chiefs say that they will fly down to Angola in July to seek 'intelligence' on local business interests and benefit from recent bilateral agreements between two countries. The Kenya Trade and Investment Conference Spokesperson Anne Maria Moraa said the Conference that takes place on July 23 offers Kenya the opportunity to kill four birds with one stone.
The Conference that seeks to catalyse Nairobi‐Luanda trade and investment relations will give Kenyan business and corporate leaders the opportunity to explore the Angola market and engage in both Business to Business and Business to Consumer conversations.

The conference seeks to catalyse Nairobi‐Luanda trade and investment relations, as reported by Business Today.
The expected Kenyan businesspeople are linked to various sectors such as education, health and agriculture and they also intend to survey the Angolan market, at a time that the country is seeking to diversify its economy and take advantage of the recently signed agreements between the two African nations.
"Delegates will access first hand market intelligence on Angola's prospects from experts and key players, participate in structured open discussions with senior members of the Angolan government, engage with Angolan C‐level executives, develop strategies to grow and develop education, healthcare, agriculture and hospitality spaces," Anne Maria Moraa said.
''There is a good number of Angolan students training in Kenya. The Kenyan education system is a natural fit for Angolan human capital development strategies. We have world class universities and international schools that should interest Angolan parents and students'' said Dr Aloys Ojore, the Education Lead at the Conference.
