The maritime sector cooperation with Kenya

Denmark has cooperated with Kenya since the country's independence in 1963, and Danish involvement has now expanded to the maritime area.

The Danish Maritime Authority is working to initiate a strategic sector collaboration with Kenya. Kenya plays an important and active role as a regional transport corridor and economic center in East Africa and the Horn of Africa. The growth potential is great, and Danish ships load and unload raw materials, oil and food in Kenya's primary port, Mombasa, more than 200 times a year.

Therefore, development of the transport chains from sea to land is a crucial prerequisite for supporting economic development in Kenya.
