The ALN Kenya | Anjarwalla & Khanna (A&K) International Trade law practice was launched in the wake of Kenya’s and, more widely, Africa’s notable increase in participation within the international trade sphere. A&K’s International Trade Law Practice, which leverages ALN’s continental reach, focuses on questions revolving around taxes and tariffs, commerce, investment, dispute resolution, competition, anti-corruption, transparency and the rule of law, among others, in the context of both regional and international trade.
At the heart of the international trade law initiative is the African Continental Free Trade Agreement (AfCFTA) which has brought into effect one of the world’s largest free trade areas. The AfCFTA is backed by existing regional integration efforts, including the East African Community (EAC), the Common Market for Eastern and Southern Africa (COMESA), and the Intergovernmental Authority on Development (IGAD), amongst others.
Kenya has demonstrated a commitment to leveraging trade deals to secure its own and the region’s prosperity. A key example are the ongoing Kenya-United States Free Trade Agreement negotiations, which are intended to usher in a new era of bilateral relations and form the framework for future engagements between the US and other African countries. Kenya has signed an Economic Partnership Agreement with the United Kingdom, further demonstrating the country’s stance in advancing trade and investment deals for Kenya’s economic benefit.
