Kenyan President William Ruto has directed the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Diaspora to open an Embassy in Budapest, Hungary.
Ruto said the process should begin immediately and the Mission be up in a year or two.
Speaking during talks on Tuesday with Speaker of the Hungarian Parliament, Dr László Kövér, at State House Nairobi, Ruto noted that the embassy will help escalate the relations between the two countries.
On his part, the Hungarian Speaker said the parliaments of the two countries have done a lot in strengthening the relations between Kenya and Hungary.
Dr Kövér concurred with the Kenyan President that Hungary is keen to deepen the long-standing bilateral cooperation that the two countries have been fostering.
Kenya’s exports to Hungary include cut flowers, fruits, vegetables, tobacco and fish, with more opportunities in meat, clothing, dairy and pharmaceutical products.
