NAIROBI, Kenya-The Kenya National Chamber of Commerce and Industry (KNCCI) President Richard Ngatia will articulate the topic on Kenya-South America business ties in a live TV show on the International channel CNBC on Monday 13th, 2023.

Ngatia will be interviewed on CNBC TV’s “Closing Bell” series which is on the DSTv digital platform at 17:00 (East African Time-EAT) and 16:00 CAT.

Ngatia who has served as the chairman of the Great Lakes region General Assembly will speak on the key areas and sectors in the region pertaining to the business community in the Pan-African market.

“See you then on Closing Bell,” said Ngatia while inviting viewers to the show. Ngatia, during his stint at the helm of the business community in Kenya and the region, has been at the forefront on spearheading trade talks and entering pacts with countries in other regions. 

Ngatia will speak on the areas of cooperation that can be exploited between Kenya and countries in South America including the areas of Agri-business, Digital Economy. The country and South America have a common denominator in the agricultural production of coffee, and maize among other products.

The chamber President last year represented the Business Community in Eastern Africa at the BIG 8 Business Forum in Paris, France where he advocated for partnerships between Kenya and French companies in the areas of Agri-businesses, Digital Economy, Manufacturing, and Logistics.
