Relief for Businesses as Kenya, Britain Reach Post-Brexit Deal
Kenya and the UK have reached a new trade agreement, nearly 55 days before the expiry of existing privileges, as London formally exits the European Union. Once signed, the new agreement will be made formal. The development came after a marathon session of virtual talks between officials in Nairobi and London to iron out contentious issues. A dispatch issued on November 3, 2020, said the two sides had reached common ground on major trade issues. The UK quit the EU, following a referendum in 2016.
