Vysnova Partners, Inc. (Vysnova) was delighted to join the President of Kenya, Mr. Uhuru Kenyatta, and several members of his cabinet, at the official signing of a private sector agreement that seeks to expand trade and investments between Kenya and the United States of America.

The agreement signed between the Corporate Council on Africa (CCA) and the Kenya Private Sector Alliance (KEPSA) provides a framework for Kenyan and American businesses, especially the small and medium enterprises (SMEs) to partner through information sharing, training, logistics, and financing. Vysnova has been working in Kenya since 2015 and was one of the U.S. SMEs invited to participate in the event.

President Uhuru Kenyatta noted that the agreement will create new opportunities for Kenyan SMEs saying the sector plays a key role in guaranteeing the country’s economic resilience especially in times of turbulence.  The President thanked the CCA for its steadfast commitment to the strengthening of African-American economic ties saying the improving trade and investment relations between the US and Kenya were largely due to the organization’s good work. In President Kenyatta’s words, “investment matters when it changes lives”.

Vysnova’s President, Mr. Carlos Rivera, was pleased to attend and be present to discuss our firm’s capabilities with several members of President Kenyatta’s team.
