Kwale Governor H.E Salim Mvurya this afternoon held brief talks with Hungarian Ambassador to Kenya László Eduard Máthé who paid him a courtesy call in his office.
The two discussed on possible areas of development partnership where the county government of Kwale can work together with the Hungarian government.
The Governor pointed out that the county government of Kwale welcomes development partners and investments in projects that are focused on uplifting not only the county’s economy, but also the livelihood of the people.
“Were are ready to invest in projects that are targeted at opening up rural areas for agribusiness that will feed the Kombani wholesale market that we will open very soon,” he said.
On his side the Ambassador assured Governor Mvurya that the Hungarian government will support the county government of Kwale in development projects that are focused on growing the county’s economy through job creation.
“We are ready to fund proposed projects that are primarily supporting job creation. We already have a bilateral program with the Kenyan government where we offer scholarship for Kenyan students to study in Hungary which can also benefit the county government of Kwale,” he said.
Those present at the meeting were CEC members Hemed Mwabudzo, Sylvia Chidodo, Joanne Nyamasyo, and Chief Officers Anthony Mwamunga, Juma Mbete, Legal Adviser Salim Gombeni and Monitoring and Evaluation Officer Francis Ndiege.
