USIU Students Pay Courtesy Call 12/09/2011
On 1 September 2011, the Kenya Embassy Brussels was priviledged to welcome 58 USIU students of various disciplines to the Chancery. The team was welcomed by the Chargé d’Affaires a.i., Mr. Washington Oloo and Embassy staff.
The USIU students were touring Europe, having already visited Germany, France and now Belgium and then on to the Netherlands. The group had visited key cities and international organizations in these countries. The Professor leading the delegation informed that the trip is intended to provide an opportunity for the students to understudy the operations of international institutions and organizations.
On behalf of the Kenya Embassy, Mr. Oloo gave a brief presentation on Kenya/Belgium relations and the Embassy activities. He highlighted Kenya’s key role at the African, Caribbean and Pacific Group of States, the European Union and our relations with the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg.
The students expressed keen interest in the agricultural sector, and the whole issue of market access of Kenyan products to the European region. They were also keen to learn the role of the Kenyan Diaspora and their contribution to Kenya’s development.
On behalf of the students, Prof. Onyango the head of the team, expressed his gratitude to the Embassy for welcoming them to the chancery and thanked them for making time to talk to the students on Kenya’s diplomatic engagement in Belgium, Luxembourg and the EU.
