Kenya has signed four bilateral agreements with Hungary; for cooperation in health, water, education, and diplomacy sectors.
The agreement on health covers human resource capacity building, information sharing and prevention of diseases including COVID-19. The pact on education seeks to double the number of Kenyans receiving Hungarian government scholarships from the current 100 to 200 annually, while the agreement on water covers wastewater management among other related aspects.
Kenya and Hungary also signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) on diplomatic training and information exchange that will see the two countries collaborate in the training of diplomats.
“We thank you and your administration for the kind gesture which will not only help strengthen our people-to-people collaboration but also enhance our two countries cooperation within the wider Kenya-European Union partnership,” President Uhuru Kenyatta said.
