Sisi and Kenyan President Uhuru Kenyatta held discussions at the State House in the country’s capital Nairobi with an aim of bolstering cooperation between their two states.

The two countries agreed to remove double taxation on imports in a bid to improve trade between the two countries, the Daily Nation reports.

“We have agreed to fast track and conclude our bilateral agreement on double taxation before the end of this year,” President Kenyatta said.

The decision means that goods from either countries will only be subjected to import duty.

President Kenyatta said this will boost tea exports to Egypt, for example, which used to be Kenya’s second largest importer, before the Arab Spring in 2011.

The two leaders also vowed to cooperate on the use of the Nile, a sticking issue between Egypt and riparian countries of the world’s longest river.
