The Expo Dubai 2020 in the UAE marked Kenya’s national day of honour. President Uhuru Kenyatta graced the occasion at the Al Wasl Plaza, where he addressed Kenyans, dignitaries from the United Arab Emirates, and other Expo visitors upon raising the national flag.
The President asserted that Kenya is a fast-rising industrialized middle-income country with sufficient capacity to expand trade to the Gulf countries and the world.
He highlighted that Kenya is blessed with political and economic stability, a large domestic consumer market, the youthful and skilled labor force that positions the country as a preferred investment destination for multinationals.
Traditional dancers from the Bomas of Kenya dance troupe entertained guests at the Expo grounds with an outstanding performance to showcase Kenya’s rich traditional and cultural heritage. The President also had an opportunity to visit the Kenya Pavillion at the Expo.
Each of the 192 participating countries is granted a national day of honour to give the world a taste of its national values, culture, and heritage.
