Kenyan tea gets major boost in EU market

Kenyan tea is set for a major boost in the European market if an initiative by a Dutch imports agency is implemented. This follows efforts by the Centre for Promotion of Imports (CBI) from developing countries, an arm of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of The Netherlands, to improve skills of Kenyan agricultural agencies and stakeholders in the tea sector.
The CBI event has for the first time brought together Kenyan tea growers and exporters for a three-day training workshop in The Hague, aimed at marketing branded Kenyan tea in the European Union. Kenyan participants attending the workshop at Mercurie Hotel include Tea Research Foundation of Kenya, Tea Board of Kenya, Ministry of Agriculture and Kenya Tea Packers. Paul Kiprono from Tea Research Foundation of Kenya said the growing demand for high value tea products in EU markets has been due to the shift from generic tea to tea with health benefits. Tea Research Foundation of Kenya recently released purple cloned tea that offers a good opportunity to develop a wide range of products for the EU market requirements. Phoebe Awuor, CBI Kenya representative, said about 24 participants from Kenya attended the event, 14 of whom are producers, processing and packing companies. The rest are business development support agencies in the tea sector.
“I am happy to be at the workshop to learn how to add value to the whole supply chain so that Kenyan tea can be branded as “ teas from Kenya” unlike in the past when  it was used to blend and upgrade other teas,” said Elgeyo/Marakwet County goodwill ambassador and entrepreneur in The Netherlands, Dorcas Jeruto. “This programme will allow tea farmers to add value to the tea and export it as branded tea from Kenya, which we will buy directly from the shops over here.” The participants also toured International Exhibition in Amsterdam yesterday, led by Patrick Gouka, Kenya’s representative on agriculture, and Peter van Gilst, the co-ordinator in Africa and Middle East. The tour was geared towards seeing and meeting private label marketing associations for insights into packaging standards and product certification for EU markets. Gouka said CBI was committed to supporting small tea businesses in Kenya to access European consumers. Dr Bernard Lagat, an agricultural economist, said sustainability requires the tea industry to shift from conventional production technologies to modern production methods, adding that the value addition strategy should be largely consumer driven.

CBK to launch new banknotes in June

The Central Bank of Kuwait (CBK) is set to launch the new sixth issue of Kuwaiti banknotes as of June 29, CBK Governor Dr. Mohammad Al-Hashel announced here on Monday."The new issue will be in circulation from June 29, 2014," Al-Hashel said at a celebration held on the occasion in presence of senior officials of concerned state bodies and agencies.The usage of the fifth banknotes shall run in parallel with the new banknotes until withdrawal of current banknotes is completed, he added.The new banknote issue reflects the CBK's sincere efforts to keep pace with the state-of-the-art technology used in the industry of banknote-printing and improvement in the signs and security specifications therefor, Al-Hashel pointed out.The new sixth issue uses the Kuwaiti flag as an inspiring artistic base for all new banknotes to illustrate and promote the national identity, he added.Arguably the most familiar and iconic Kuwaiti landmark, the Kuwait Towers are illustrated on the banknote's front as they soar mightily into the sky. The banknote's backside alludes to Kuwait's marine life and the significance of preserving it such as the endangered hawksbill sea turtle and the silver pomfret (Al Zubaidi), Kuwait's most popular fish.The striking Liberation Tower, a massive 372-meter structure that is one of the main landmarks in Kuwait City as well as one of the tallest buildings in the world, appears on the front side of the banknote as a symbol of Kuwait's independence since its erection in 1996.
The banknote's backside portrays a traditional wooden Kuwaiti door, a plaster carving and the first Kuwaiti coin used locally.With its powerful pyramid steel structure, the Central Bank of Kuwait's newly constructed building portrayed on the banknote's front side represents the Bank's objectives of ensuring resilience, stability and a sound monetary policy.The back of the banknote shows off one of Kuwait's oil refineries and a tanker as a testament to Kuwait's precious source of prosperity.A superb illustration of the Grand Mosque, the largest mosque in the country as well as a symbol of Kuwait's Islamic identity, is portrayed on the banknote's front.The backside of the banknote displays a real-life illustration of an iconic column, one of the many influences of ancient Greece's civilization that swept across and settled in Kuwait's island of Failaka.
On the front side of the banknote appears the illustrious Seif Palace, a symbol of sovereignty and ruling power to all of Kuwait's erstwhile rulers where the country's affairs are administered.The Boom, the largest and most popular traditional Kuwaiti dhow, is featured on the backside of the banknote, an element that alludes to Kuwait's modernization as well as its rich economic and commercial history that is linked to the deep blue seas. Another element included on the back is a pearl diver, one of the earliest professions that enabled Kuwaitis to earn a living before the discovery of oil.The glorious Kuwait National Assembly Building, a symbolic pillar of Kuwait's democratic constitution, is beautifully illustrated on the front side of the banknote. Kuwait's diverse desert life takes over on the banknote's backside; a captivating illustration of a falcon oversees a seated camel dressed regally in a traditional sadu saddle.

Kenya to get LNG from Qatar for power station

Kenya will negotiate the import of natural gas from Qatar Gas to fuel a power station it wants built in the Indian Ocean port city of Mombasa, the president’s office said.The gas-powered power plant is part of the government’s plans to add 5,000 MW to Kenya’s existing 1,664 MW generation capacity by 2017 to accelerate economic growth, which is expected to push Kenya’s power demand up to 15,000 MW by 2030.
The Ministry of Energy and Petroleum is evaluating bids from investors interested in developing the 700-800 MW natural gas-fired plant near Mombasa, as well as a 900-1,000 MW coal-power plant at Lamu.The announcement was made during a visit by President Uhuru Kenyatta to Qatar.“The President noted that Kenya Pipeline had already signed a Non-Disclosure Agreement with Qatar Gas to start negotiation for the supply of 1 million metric tonnes per annum of LNG to Kenya to power the 700-megawatt gas plant in the port city of Mombasa,” Kenyatta’s press office said in a statement.The statement provided no further details on when the negotiations were expected to start.The Nairobi government wants to halve the cost of electricity within three to four years from between 17 and 18 U.S. cents per kilowatt hour, mainly by increasing supply from cheaper energy sources, phasing out diesel generation
