|NAIROBI Giovanni Moreno Colombia Camiseta , April 28 (Xinhua) -- Australian government on Monday said it has no information linking Kenya to last week's seizure of heroin with a street value of 290 million U.S. dollars.
A statement from the Australian High Commission in Nairobi said there was no Australian asset which entered Kenya's territorial waters, stressing that the reference to Kenya in the Australian media release was to provide background geographical information only.
"The dhow was deemed stateless. This operation was undertaken by the crew of HMAS Darwin but it was an international operation," the statement said.
The Australian Navy sailors patrolling the coast of Africa last week seized 1 Farid Diaz Colombia Camiseta ,032 kilograms of heroin on a sailing boat on April 2324 at the international waters.
Crew from HMAS Darwin boarded the wooden boat east of Kenya and discovered 46 sacks of heroin hidden among bags of cement. The Navy said the drugs from the dhow were taken aboard HMAS Darwin.
The seizure was made as part of an international operation against drug smuggling in the Indian Ocean, the profits of which help to fund terror organisations including Al Qaeda.
The ship's commander, Terry Morrison Frank Fabra Colombia Camiseta , reportedly said the heroin seizure will put a dent in terrorist funding networks.
"These drugs have now been seized and are about to be destroyed. It's well known that these drugs assist terrorist organisations through funding so that they can conduct violent acts," he said.
HMAS Darwin is currently deployed on patrol under tasking to the Combined Maritime Forces (CMF) and the UK led Combined Task Force (CTF) 150.
The statement was issued after Nairobi summoned Australian envoy to provide more information on the drugs.
It is believed the vessel found with the haul is one of two notorious vessels used for illegal trade along the East African Coast and is partly owned by Kenyans.
The two boats, according to reports Felipe Pardo Colombia Camiseta , are said to be predominantly used along the East Africa coast and have been tracked from Somalia.
The Australian Navy reportedly did not information the Kenya Government over the operation to seize the drug to limit any prospects of information leaking out.
The high commission said the seizure highlights areas of improved cooperation with Kenya, both through the CMF under which Australia operates and directly with authorities in Nairobi.
Australia said Kenya is a valued partner in responding to global security challenges, including maritime security challenges.
"Kenya and Australia are both members of the Indian Ocean Naval Symposium (IONS) Miguel Borja Colombia Camiseta , which aims to increase maritime cooperation among the littoral states of the Indian Ocean region," the statement said.
Kenya and Australia are also members of the Indian Ocean Rim Association (IORA) which seeks to expand mutually beneficial cooperation in the areas of maritime safety and security, trade and investment facilitation Mateus Uribe Colombia Camiseta , fisheries management, disaster risk management, academic science and technology cooperation Yerry Mina Colombia Camiseta , and tourism and cultural exchanges.
Australia said it will continue to engage with Kenya on maritime security, a commitment reflected by recent visits (in January and March) of then Australian Commander CTF150 Commodore Bates and the upcoming port visit by HMAS Darwin.
NAIROBI， Oct. 26 (Xinhua) -- Kenya is planning to raise the amount of foreign investments to 30 percent of the Gross Domestic Product (GDP) in order to hit 10 percent annual economic growth， a government official said on Wednesday.
Treasury Cabinet Secretary Henry Rotich said the East African nation expected to grow at 6 percent this year， a situation much different from the International Monetary Fund (IMF) focus of 1.4 percent economic growth rate for Africa.
"Our economy is growing favorable at 6 percent and the foreign direct investment is rising due to the measures we have put in place. We are not happy to grow at 6 percent. We want our growth to reach 10 percent. This requires us to deepen our business sector reforms，" Rotich said.
The Treasury minister spoke at the launch of a new World Bank Group's Doing Business 2017 report which shows Kenya climbed 44 places to become the world's third most improved business destination.
Kenya hopes to attract foreign investments equivalent to 30 percent of its 70 billion U.S. dollars. According to the minister， Kenya plans to sustain efforts to improve the business environment. At the rate of 30 percent， Kenya projects at least 21 billion dollars worth of foreign investments to improve national economic growth to 10 percent.
In order to achieve the growth rates， Kenya's Industrialization Cabinet Secretary Adan Mohamed said the country performed better on the improvement of the business environment.
Measured against 10 different scores by the World Bank Group's Doing Business Report， Kenya emerged number 92 out of 190 countries as a result of measures to ease the conditions for doing business.
The government eased conditions of doing business by removing stamp duty requirement on nominal capital for business registration， easing the cost of business start ups.
Mohamed said the government also eased the conditional requirement for all business start-ups to appear before an attorney to swear an oath to comply with the business laws.
The measures helped improve the East African nation's ranking on the global business outlook.
"Kenya has made it easier to resolve business insolvency and even easier for firms which ran bankrupt to liquidate and reenter the market. Previously， it was impossible to register the same business after running into bankruptcy，" Caroline Kariuki， Chief Executive Officer， Kenya Private Sector Alliance (KEPSA) told Xinhua.
She said Kenya emerged as the third most improved country in the Doing Business Report as a result of the business laws， which include the legislation cr.
