The government will work with leading global tech companies to prepare Kenyan youth for opportunities in the digital space.
President William Ruto said the government has partnered with various global tech companies to train youth to meet international standards.
This, he said, will enable Kenyan youth to be competitive in the global market that offers unlimited opportunities.
“We want Kenya to be among countries recognised globally for offering remote services in this field,” he said.
He spoke at State House Nairobi during a series of high level meetings with various leaders of international tech companies.
They included heads of Meta, Microsoft, Google, Master Card, Visa Card, Multichoice, Thunderbird and Estonia embassy officials.
Later, the Head of State attended the Jamhuri Tech and Innovation Summit at the Kenyatta International Conference Center (KICC) where he toured innovation booths and engaged exhibitors.
