Welcome to the website of the Chinese Embassy. We appreciate your attention to China and China-Kenya relations.
China and Kenya enjoy a time-honored friendship. Over 600 years ago, the great Chinese navigator Zheng He of China's Ming dynasty visited Kenya's eastern coast and started the friendly exchanges between Chinese and Kenyan people. In 1963, China and Kenya established diplomatic ties, ushering in a new era of enhanced friendly relations and fruitful cooperation between the two countries.
In recent years, China-Kenya relations maintained a good momentum of comprehensive development, with frequent exchanges of visits at all levels, further strengthening of political trust, dynamic economic and trade cooperation, rich and colorful people to people contacts. The development of bilateral ties is in the common interest of the people of both countries.
The Chinese Embassy remains firmly committed to fulfill its duty to promote the mutual understanding, friendly exchanges and win-win cooperation between China and Kenya. It is my sincere hope that the Embassy website will serve as a public window through which you can learn about China and China-Kenya relations, and a bridge to friendship between the two peoples.
