Barely a week after visiting Germany with former Prime Minister and CORD leader Raila Odinga, Mombasa Governor Ali Hassan Joho is set to attend an annual legislative conference in the United States capital of Washington DC at the invitation of the powerful Black Congressional Caucus.
Already, the ODM Party leader Raila Odinga is scheduled to attend a one week lecture at Yale University.
During the event, the 44th Legislative Annual Conference, the Governor will present a paper on investment opportunities in the county in the areas of health, energy, water, manufacturing in a projected free trade zone and technology at the Walter E Washington Convention Center.
The conference will bring together business, industry leaders, lawmakers and other professionals from the United States of America to explore solutions to the challenges that plague the African American and African communityâ€”from poverty and unemployment to quality education. One of the key speakers will be Ambassador Johnnie Carson – Former U.S. Assistant Secretary of State for African Affairs
â€œWe will be meeting our African American brothers to explore various prospects for them to invest back in their mother land. This is an opportunity for Mombasa to reconnect not only culturally but also economically. We endeavor to learn from the exciting and educative presentations organized at the conference,â€ said Governor Hassan Joho.
Joho is accompanied by Hon. Mishi Mboko, Hon. Rashid Bedzimba and Lewa Tendai Mtana, the Ag. Executive Secretary in charge of Health.
