Kenya Investment Summit 31 July Mansion House, London

WELCOME STATEMENT BY HIS EXCELLENCY THE HON. MWAI KIBAKI, PRESIDENT OF THE REPUBLIC OF KENYA On my own behalf and on behalf of the Government and the people of Kenya, I convey our warm greetings to you all. I take great pride in Kenya’s participation at the summer 2012 London Olympic Games and the Paralympics Games thereafter. As a committed Member of the Olympics fraternity, Kenya is proud to be not only the cradle of great Olympic athletes but also Africa’s leading athletics nation. The country has over the years won several world records in long distance athletic events. The Government of Kenya has laid out an elaborate programme to take advantage of our presence at the summer Olympics to reach out to the global trade and investment audience. To achieve this, the Government of Kenya and its partners will be co‐hosting an Investment Summit seeking to attract Interna‐ tional Investment capital into our country. I am particularly happy that the Lord Mayor of the City of Lon‐ don has agreed that this Investment Summit be held at his official residence at the Mansion House. The Kenya Investment Summit will be held on July 31st 2012 and will focus on specially selected bankable projects envisioned in our development blue‐print, Kenya Vision 2030. Over ten eminent speakers and panellists, and nearly 200 delegates are expected to attend. The Summit, the first of its kind in London, will provide an extraordinary opportunity for investors, businesses executives and government officials to network and take part in a comprehensive dialogue geared to understanding the business and investment climate in Kenya and to enhance Foreign Direct Investment. On behalf of the Government of Kenya I look forward to welcoming you to this Summit, and also to the Kenya House, in Stratford city, near the Olympic Park where Kenya is showcasing her unique culture, art and other endowments. I join the co‐hosts of the Investment Summit, the Right Honourable Alderman David Wootton, The Lord Mayor of the City of London and Sir Alan Collins, Director General of the Commonwealth Business Council in welcoming you. “KARIBUNI” ‐ WELCOME 3

Kenya Investment Summit 31 July Mansion House, London

MESSAGE FROM ALDERMAN DAVID WOOTTON THE RT HON THE LORD MAYOR I am delighted to welcome His Excellency the President of Kenya, The Hon Mwai Kibaki, and all our partners and visitors from Kenya to the Mansion House for this important event. This Summit represents a great opportunity for Kenya and the City of London to develop further their partnership. I look forward to welcoming the President and his Ministers and providing a forum for engagement between Kenya and the City of London. We are glad to be working with the Commonwealth Business Council to facilitate this dialogue. The City of London remains the world’s pre‐eminent financial centre and provides the whole cluster of people and services that can help make Kenya’s ambitious Vision 2030 Development Plan into reality. The City is no stranger to Kenya: last year my predecessor as Lord Mayor, Alderman Sir Michael Bear, led a high profile business delegation to Nairobi and other centres, establishing solid relationships with Government, business and trade bodies alike. The City has been impressed with the progress made by Kenya since then, in its economic growth and the development of the business and services sectors, but also in laying firm foundations for the transformation of its infrastructure, its energy sector and in urban development projects. We all look forward to hearing more about these developments at the Summit. I am confident that this investment summit will take that work further and lead to further fruitful co‐operation between the Government of Kenya and the City of London.

MESSAGE FROM PETER LONGWORTH, DIRECTOR‐ GENERAL, COMMONWEALTH BUSINESS COUNCIL The world is gathering in London for the Olympic Games with African nations in buoyant form, reflecting remarkable rates of economic growth and rising living standards. The Games provide a fitting backdrop for Kenya, triumphant in sport, and the message from His Excellency President Mwai Kibaki to the international business community on his nation’s own impressive performance, its economic and investment priorities and the specific project opportunities which they offer. The Commonwealth Business Council is proud to be associated with His Excellency’s visit to London and to be working with the Lord Mayor of London in the world’s finance and business hub to support a major player in the African renaissance. Central to the work of this Summit is the Kenya Government’s Vision 2030 programme for economic development which draws together the social and economic policies essential for eliminating poverty through investment‐driven job‐creation. The CBC is confident that, given an ongoing commitment to reform and innovation, Kenya is ready to make the next major step forward in expanding and diversifying its economy. The themes for discussion at the summit reflect the key priorities and the strong participation of the President and senior Ministers confirm the Government’s commitment to delivery. The CBC looks forward to working with His Excellency and the Kenyan public and private sectors in furthering their objectives and sharing in Kenya’s success.
