The government of Poland is exploring key sectors that they could cooperate with the county government of Makueni in a bid to improve lives of people.
While visiting Governor Kivutha Kibwana in Wote town on Saturday, the Polish Ambassador to Kenya, Jacek Bazanski said some of the areas they were exploring include agriculture, health and disaster management especially in dealing with rapid response to emergencies among others.
I will link Makueni to companies that sell machineries in my country. Some are involved in selling milk coolers which would be good for local farmers, while others are in housing and green energy, said the ambassador.
At the same time, Bazanski promised to arrange for a commercial conference in Nairobi involving all companies from Poland late this year.
He further said his office will facilitate some officials from the county government to visit Poland with Kibwana leading the delegation.
On his part, the governor said that transparency and accountability was key in development and promised to first class health care in the county.
He specifically wanted to know how Poland deals with the youth so that the same can be replicated in the region to assist many youths addicted to ‘muguka’ which has made them less productive members of the community.
We want to know the best practices for young people in your country which could benefit the youth in Makueni County to ensure they enjoy the fruits of development, Kibwana said.
Among those present included Executive Committee Members of various departments in the County government.
