Kenya will intensify its engagement with the World Bank on the country development priorities.
President William Ruto said his administration is keen to tapping into innovative ways to get financing.
He was speaking on Thursday in Washington, D.C., United States of America, during a meeting with World Bank President David Malpass.
“Kenya acknowledges the World Bank and its role in financing our development needs.”
He noted that the finances will help mitigate the effects of drought and stimulate food production to beat hunger in the country.
“We are also keen on providing finances to those at the lower echelons of the economic pyramid.”
Mr Malpass commended Kenya for launching the Hustler Fund, which he said will stimulate entrepreneurship and create more employment.
