As an important node of China’s Maritime Silk Road in Africa, Kenya has been increasingly active in bilateral trade and economic cooperation with Chongqing in recent years. In 2021, the total value of imports and exports between Chongqing and Kenya was 524,566 million yuan, an increase of 43.2% year on year.

“There is significant potential for cooperation between Chongqing and Africa due to their complementary advantages. So Chongqing and African countries should deepen and strengthen economic and trade cooperation,” said He Yi.

Meanwhile, thanks to the unique geographical location, the radiation effect of Kenya is evident, which enables more Chongqing enterprises and products to enter Africa while more African enterprises and products should enter Chongqing, aiming to benefit two sides.
