The delegation included Ezdan Holding CEO Ali Mohamed al-Obaidly; International Islamic CEO Abdulbasit Ahmed al-Shaibei; Vodafone Qatar CEO Kyle Whitehill; Qatar Steel director (rolling mill department) Yusuf Ahmed al-Muhannadi; International Islamic board member Sheikh Turki bin Khalid al-Thani; Qatar Islamic Insurance
Company CEO Ali Ibrahim al-Abdulghani; and director-general of Sheikh Thani bin Abdullah Foundation for Humanitarian Services (RAF) Ayidh Dabsan al-Qahtani among other businessmen and QBA members. The delegation was received by Kenya’s Minister of Foreign Affairs and International Trade, Amina Mohamed, who held a dinner party in honour of the visiting QBA delegates, bringing them together with senior officials from the Kenyan Ministry of Foreign Affairs and members of Kenya’s business community. Qatar’s ambassador to Kenya Ibrahim Mohamed al-Abdulla and Kenya’s envoy to Qatar Galma Buro were also present. The Kenyan minister noted that the visit highlighted the already strong relationships between the two friendly countries, hoping it would further open the doors for Qatari investors to Kenya. Sheikh Dr Khalid said Kenya has become a promising and attractive business environment.
