The Danish Minister in his speech reiterated that Kenya has proved to be an economic hub for East Africa and even a gateway to one of the potentially fastest growing regions in the world.

Olsen revealed that his wish is for Denmark to further develop commercial relations with Kenya’s growing economy and ensure that Danish companies dedicate themselves to focusing on the emerging growth markets in Kenya.
