Kenya is benefiting from a shift in US foreign policy towards Africa as the global economic giant scales up its presence on the continent to counter rising Chinese influence. China has grown into Kenya’s biggest bilateral lender and source of imports, which grew 9.0 per cent to Sh227.9 billion and accounted for 18.2 per cent of the total import bill in the six-month period.

Kenya is among African nations benefiting from a U.S. shift in foreign policy as it scales up its presence on the continent. The U.S. trade office said the two countries are developing a road map of engagement in agriculture, digital trade, customs procedure and other areas.
