“The President, who will be attending the Summit at the invitation of Prime Minister Lee Hsein Loong of Singapore,” reads the statement.
Uhuru will speak about Kenya’s growth trajectory and opportunities for growth in East Africa.
The forum brings together governments, private sector and thought leaders from around the world to discuss global trends in business, finance and geopolitics.
It also discusses the impact of governments on regional and global growth, prosperity and stability.
The President will then fly to the US where he will join fellow Heads of State and Government at the 74th Session of the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) in New York on September 24, 2019
President Uhuru will use the opportunity to intensify Kenya’s campaign for one of the non-permanent seats on the UN Security Council (UNSC) for which the country recently secured the backing of the African Union.
The UNSC elections are scheduled for June next year for the 2021 to 2022 membership period.
