U.S. Eyes Chunk of Key Sectors In Kenyan Trade Deal

The U.S. government has made public a summary of key negotiation points in the proposed bilateral deal, which will see Kenya lift tariffs on all U.S. agricultural products and open its maritime, textile, telecommunications, financial services and other industries, including those classified as sensitive sectors, to U.S. investors. According to some, this agreement may cripple sectors such as agriculture and manufacturing.
