Trade and Economic relations between Ukraine and Kenya

Kenya:

Kenya is the undisputed leader in trade and economic cooperation between Ukraine and the countries of East Africa.

From more than fifty countries of the African continent, Kenya is ranked among one of the most important consumers of Ukrainian goods, entering the top ten.

The main features that make Kenya an important and promising partner for Ukraine is that Ukrainian products meet Kenyan needs and standards, prices remain affordable, and Kenya itself is increasingly taking on the role of the East African economic hub.

According to the data of the State Statistics Service of Ukraine in bilateral trade between Ukraine and Kenya reached 68.43 million USD.

Exports from Ukraine to Kenya amounted to 59.85 million USD (75.3% from the same period in 2017), imports – 8.57 million USD (increased by 107.8% compared with the same period in 2017).

In 2018, the foreign trade balance between Ukraine and Kenya remained positive and amounted to 51.28 million USD.

(*According to the data from the State Statistics Service of Ukraine in 2018)

The main articles of exports from Ukraine to Kenya in 2018 were: grains – 45.15 million USD (75.4%), ferrous metals - USD 8.01 million USD (13.4%), fats and oils of plant and animal origin - 2.92 million USD, (4.9%), vegetables - 2.17 million USD (3.6%). There has been a significant increase in the supply of sunflower oil from Ukraine to Kenya (by 232.8%).

The main articles of imports from Kenya to Ukraine in 2018 were: coffee and tea - 5.65 million USD (66%), edible fruits and nuts - 1.15 million USD (13.5%), live trees and other plants - 0.52 million USD (6%). There was an increase in its imports to Ukraine from Kenya (by 145% to the corresponding period of the previous year).

The decrease in exports from Ukraine to Kenya in 2018 was due, firstly, to the cancellation by the Government of Kenya of the specialized procedure for duty-free import of yellow corn, including from Ukraine, initiated in March 2017. Despite its decrease, there is a general tendency for increasing of the volumes of bilateral trade (according to the data of the State Statistics Committee of Ukraine for 2016 - 38.41 million USD).

According to the data of the State Statistics Committee of Ukraine in 2018, exports of services from Ukraine to Kenya amounted to 0.587 million USD, imports – 0.582 million dollars USD. Exports of services from Ukraine to Kenya amounted to 82.5% compared to the same period in 2017, imports – 64.6%.

The positive balance of trade between Kenya and Ukraine in the services sector for nine months of 2018 amounted to 5.000 USD.

The basis for the export of services from Ukraine to Kenya in 2018 was services related to travel (67.9%), telecommunications services (21.8%). Business services were the basis for import from Kenya (64.3%).

The movement in investment activity between the two countries is not observed.

The Government of Kenya pays more and more attention to the tourism industry, where Ukrainian companies can also realize their potential. In addition to trade in tourist services, trade and telecommunication services, computer and information services also constituted a significant percentage.

Kenya, as well as other countries in the region, is interested in purchasing agricultural machinery for the whole technological chain for the needs of agriculture, mainly small and medium size farms, modern medical equipment and pharmaceutical products, products of the flour milling industry.

Demand analysis shows that in the nearest future, Kenya would continue to import grain, ferrous metals, mineral fertilizers, oils of animal or vegetable origin, and vegetables. Сlimate conditions in Kenya (droughts occur in almost every part of the country almost every year) and the relatively low efficiency of agricultural production (except for export tea and coffee, macadamia nuts) makes it dependent on imports of mineral fertilizers and cereals.

The arrangements reached during the visit to the Republic of Kenya of H.E.Mr.Pavlo Klimkin, Minister of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine in May 2018, which became the first visit in the history of the bilateral relations, have given a great impetus to the development of relations between Ukraine and Kenya in the trade and economic sphere.

In this regard, the Ukrainian and Kenyan Sides are working together to create treaty and legal framework for further development and enhancement of bilateral trade and economic relations, in particular, through the elaboration of the Draft Agreement on the Establishment of a Joint Intergovernmental Commission and the Memorandum on Cooperation in the field of agriculture as well as other important draft agreements in this area.
