Kenyan Diaspora Planned Activities in Canada

The Kenyan Diaspora is a key pillar in Kenya’s Foreign Policy as the government realizes and appreciates its important contribution towards national development. The milestones made by the government towards enhancing Diaspora engagement culminated in the development of Kenya’s

Diaspora policy which was launched recently. The recently concluded Diaspora Easter Investment Conference 2015 held in Nairobi and attended by over 1000 delegates is a key achievement.

The conference received immense support from all the stakeholders creating a renewed partnership between them, the Diaspora and the government. The Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Trade is keen on sustaining the momentum created by the conference by supporting Kenyan Diaspora initiatives all over the world.

Consequently, this Mission is requesting all the Kenyan Community Organizations in Canada to submit all their planned activities for the remaining part of 2015 such as conferences, investment forums and Town Hall Meetings. This will enable the Ministry and the Mission to plan the activities as well as share information with the Kenyan Private sector and other Stakeholders who are keen in participating in the same.

The organizations should also nominate Focal points and submit their details for ease of communication between this mission and the Diaspora organizations. The Schedule of events and the details of the focal point should be sent by email to: jk.cheruiyot@kenyahighcommission.ca

Kindly treat this as urgent.
