Kenya is poised to draw various economic and socio-cultural benefits by hosting the first G25 African Coffee Summit (ACS) starting 25th -27th May in Nairobi.

Themed ‘Sustainable Development and Economic Growth in the African Coffee Sector’, the Heads of States and Government of the 25 African Coffee Producing Countries shall converge to marshal consensus for integrating coffee as an anchor commodity in the African Union (AU) in harmony with the Africa Union Agenda 2063.

Speaking on Saturday at Kilimo House during a press briefing on the summit, Dr. Francis Owino, Principal Secretary State Department for Crops Development and Agriculture Research said the summit would give Africa the leverage to address the challenges faced by the African coffee sector under the auspices of the African Union to build a united and integrated Africa.

The Summit, the PS said, would also be a big milestone in the history of the coffee sector on the African continent thus offering an opportunity to Kenya to enhance her economic growth by enhancing export of her coffees to a number of African countries.
