Press Release

WASHINGTON, DC – Today, Ways and Means Committee Chairman Richard E. Neal (D-MA) released the following statement on the U.S.-Kenya trade relationship after meeting with President Uhuru Kenyatta:

“Today, I hosted President Uhuru Kenyatta of Kenya for a bipartisan meeting with the Members of the Ways and Means Committee. I have supported U.S. trade engagement with Africa through programs like AGOA for a long time. Kenya is an important trading partner and leader on the African continent. I look forward to working with President Kenyatta and his government to make sure that any U.S.-Kenya trade arrangements that build on AGOA are mutually beneficial, reflect our shared economic aspirations and democratic values, respect Congress’s freedom to regulate in dynamic areas of domestic policy, and demonstrate a commitment to the enforcement of strong worker rights, environmental protections, and good governance.”
