Vice President Harris to Participate in Moderated Conversation with President Ruto of Kenya at the U.S. Chamber of Commerce

WASHINGTON, D.C. — On Friday, May 24, Vice President Kamala Harris will participate in a moderated conversation with President William Ruto of the Republic of Kenya on digital inclusion in Africa at the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, during President Ruto’s State Visit. The Vice President and President Ruto will appear at the U.S.-Kenya Business Forum, hosted by the U.S. Chamber of Commerce’s U.S.-Africa Business Center.

Building on her trip to Africa in March and April 2023, the Vice President will speak about public and private sector efforts to increase investment in digital inclusion across Africa, and the strong partnership between the United States and Kenya on technology, innovation, and entrepreneurship. The Vice President has spoken extensively about the innovation, ingenuity, and entrepreneurship underway across Africa and how U.S. investment in innovation will unlock economic growth for Africa, the United States, and the entire world.

In April 2023, in Lusaka, Zambia, the Vice President convened business and philanthropic leaders to advance efforts to promote digital inclusion in Africa, and to build upon the more than $8 billion in public and private investments she galvanized as part of her trip to Africa. The Vice President is looking forward to welcoming new commitments and new public-private partnerships formed in response to her Call to Action. Her ongoing work to increase private sector investments to promote digital inclusion is in support of the Digital Transformation with Africa Initiative, which President Biden launched at the U.S.-Africa Leaders Summit in December 2022.
